Whippets Lose Back and Forth to Blue Jays

Minden’s boys came back from 19 down at halftime to take a lead midway through the fourth quarter only to lose on a Ravenna free throw with two tenths of a second left as the Blue Jays edged the Whippets 51-50 on January 10 in Minden. The Whippets dropped to 6-5. 

Minden simply could not hit shots from the field or the foul line in the first half going 5 of 24 on field goals and 2 of 10 on free throws. Ravenna was on top 32-13 at the intermission. 

By the end of the third period the Whippets had cut the deficit down to five, 32-37. Braiden Schroeder had six points in the quarter and Seth Hauserman four.
