HESSTON — The Hesston boys have faced few challenges since their season-opening, one-point loss to Buhler.

The Swathers breezed by Kingman on Friday, 55-28.

It was the second quarter that totally blew the game open as Hesston scored 25 points to lead 40-12 at the half. The Swathers scored only 15 points in the second half as coach Greg Raleigh went deep into his bench.

It was the Zach Attack that led the way, as Zach Esau poured in 16 points and Zach Vogt added 12.

• KINGMAN GIRLS 42, HESSTON 39 — The Hesston girls must have missed their wake-up call.

The Swathers scored only 12 points through three quarters to trail the Eagles by 15, but stormed back with 27 points in the final period, but it wasn’t enough.

Hesston started OK with eight first-quarter points, but managed just four over the next two quarters before unleashing a flurry.

Cami Richardson was most of Swather offense with 24 points as they lost for the second time this year after going undefeated last year. Kailey Jo Ince just missed double figures with nine.
