HORICON 58,

HUSTISFORD 57

HORICON — Senior guard Hunter Nehls and junior guard C.J. Brooks each went over 1,000 points for their career and combined for 37 points to lead Horicon to a 58-57 Trailways East win over Hustisford’s boys basketball team on Tuesday.

Nehls scored 23 and Brooks scored 14 before leaving the game with a suspected high ankle sprain for Horicon (9-5, 5-4 in conference). The two schools play on a cooperative football team in the fall, making this rivalry a real trap game for Hustisford (10-5, 6-2).

“We knew that going in,” Hustisford boys basketball coach Jake Falkenthal said. “They had two guys close to 1,000 points. They had nothing to play for. It was all about pride. I warned (our guys). They didn’t come out. One guy came to play, unfortunately.”

Junior guard Justin Kuehl led all scorers with 30 points and added eight rebounds and two assists for Husty. Senior forward Nick Bloedel added 10 points, eight assists and four rebounds.

“I was pleased with Nick’s effort,” Falkenthal said.

Bloedel was fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws to pull the Falcons within one with 1 minute, 10 seconds remaining. Husty got a stop on Horicon’s ensuing possession and worked the clock down. Sophomore point guard Dylan Schmitt tried to drive in from the perimeter and was called for an offensive foul with 2.7 seconds remaining. The Falcons stole the ensuing inbounds pass and called timeout, but the play drawn up on the bench didn’t pan out and a desperation shot at the buzzer was off the mark.

Hustisford hosts Central Wisconsin Christian for Parents’ Night on Friday.
