Hornets split games with Lions

Tribune staff reports


The Medora boys basketball team kicked into gear and raced to a 58-45 victory Friday at home against Lighthouse Christian, giving the Hornets their first win of the season.

After Lighthouse Christian opened the game with a 6-0 run, Medora answered with the next seven points and increased its lead from there.

“I thought about calling a timeout, but the kids just took over before I could and went on a 7-0 run,” Hornets first-year coach Andrew Evertts said. “It was a good night. We made a lot of steps forward.”

Roy Edwards led Medora with 20 points, and Bryce Cockerham had a double-double of 14 points and a team-high 16 rebounds.
