Hornets Nipped, 8-4 Midway

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — The Cowden-Herrick Hornets (8-4) finished the St. Elmo Tourney last weekend with a 3rd place trophy, while Altamont finished 2nd. They met on Tuesday night. The two teams were so even they ended regulation tied, 54-54. When the extra-session was done they were still just two points apart. Altamont won, 63-61.

The Hornets had four players in double figures, while Altamont had the two game-high scorers. Luke Moore led C-H with 15 points, followed by Seth Barnes with 12, Ethan Schoonover with 12, and Tyson Morgason with 12. Altamont was led by Ziegler with 27 and Mayhaus with 18 and no other players in double figures.

Altamont shot more free throws and made six more in a 2-point win. Altamont shot 29 free throws and made 18 (63%). Cowden-Herrick shot 20 free throws and made just 12 (60%). The two teams were even on 3-pointers. Moore had a trey hat trick and Colton Burrus and Seth Barnes had one, each. C-H actually made more field goals than the Indians, 22 to 20. The difference was free throws in a game played at Altamont.

Altamont led the Hornets by three after one, 11-8, then the game got amped up as both teams almost doubled their scores in the 2nd quarter from the 1st. Altamont went out to a 9-point at the break, 31-22.

The Hornets turned things around in the 2nd half, with a 15-10 run in the 3rd, then scoring 17 points in crunch time to knot the score at the end of regulation. In OT, Altamont found a way to nip the Hornets.

Moore had another double-double against Altamont with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Seth Barnes scored 12 points with one trey and shooting 5-of-7 at the line. Schoonover shot 6-of-9 (67%) from inside the arc and scored 12 points. Morgason scored 12 points, including 4-of-5 from the line.

Cowden-Herrick has been really good in the first half of the season. They were 6-2 before the St. Elmo Tourney, including a 5-game winning streak. They took a 4-point loss to South Central, then won the next two games to place 3rd. Luke Moore earned a 1st team selection.

He scored 49 points in three games and grabbed 26 rebounds.
