Wildcats claim easy win at Wausa

WAUSA  —  The Hartington Wildcats kept the Wausa Vikings winless on Tuesday with a 70-31 pasting.
Hartington roared out to a 39-11 lead by the half and never slowed down as they picked up their 11th win of the season against just sux losses.
Caleb Lammers led all scorers with his 13 points and Phil Wiebelhaus drained a pair of three pointers on his way to 10 points to lead the Wildcat attack.
Andrew Conn was a bright spot for the Vikes with 13 points and Brian Haselhorst finished with eight points and five rebounds.
“We played a complete game with solid defense, only a few turnovers and we ran the break well. Austin Driver has been our stopper on defense all year and once again forced a lot of turnovers and Travis Wortmann and Blake Gothier had a good game off the bench for us,” said Coach Tim Manzer.


The Wildcats got eight points from Caleb Lammers and a trey from Phil Wiebelhaus to help them get out to an early 18-8 first-quarter lead.
Hartington playrf well on both ends of the court in the second period and a big 24-3 run gave them the 39-11 halftime advantage.
Miles Methany’s four points and another trey by Wiebelhaus, as well as one by Caleb Lammers, helped spark the big run.
Andrew Conn hit a trey to open the third quarter and five points by Brian Haselhorst tried to rally the Vikings in the third period.
Hartington would not let the game slip, however, and four points by Wes Fleming and balanced scoring helped the Wildcats pull away to a 57-22 lead.
Conn hit for five more points in the final quarter for Wausa but Hartington’s bench supplied support with four points each from Blake Gothier and Travis Wortmann and Hartington rolled to the 70-31 win.
