Seiling pressure stifles Hinton, 58-43
After a slow start, the Seiling Wildcats turned up the offensive aggressiveness in the second quarter to break things open in a 58-43 road win over Hinton to close out the initial semester.
The Wildcats hit just four of their first 12 shots from the field and trailed 13-9 late in the opening stanza before putting things together during a 24-7 burst to claim a double-digit lead at intermission.
Now 6-2 on the season, Coach Brandon Nyberg’s 17th ranked squad returns to action with another road test at Class 2A Mooreland on Friday.
“We have a tendency of settling for outside shots and weren’t near aggressive enough to start with,” said Nyberg. “We tried to spread them out and their big kids weren’t coming out of the paint. We went more to a single post and started attacking through Riley (Tune). That opened things up for us to drive a little more and second quarter was much better.”
Tune was a key catalyst in the big surge, posting eight of his 13 points in the period to spur the visitors.
