REMINGTON — Moundridge’s boys survived a grueling week on the road, as they completed it undefeated after a 51-47 victory over Remington on Friday.
The Wildcats were up 31-18 at the half and fended off the Broncos in the second half. Noah Eichelberger and Anthony Otte were again proficient offensively with 20 and 17 points, respectively. Eichelberger knocked down all five of his free throws.
“We led by nine several times in the second half, but could never put them away,” MHS coach Vance Unrau said. “Remington is athletic and plays hard. They have lost some close games this year and we are fortunate to get out of there with a win. The kids did what we had to do down the stretch, taking care of the ball and making free throws to close it out. They are a very strong and aggressive rebounding team and I have to credit our guys for hanging tough on the glass.”
The Moundridge girls lost for only the third time this year, 57-53.
The Wildcats found themselves down 31-21 at the half before making a charge behind Peri Lange and Ashley Holler. Lange scored 14 of her career-high 19 points after halftime while Holler also scored 19, 12 after the break.
