HUTCHINSON — McPherson’s ninth-grade boys were edged 49-46 by Derby on Saturday in the opening round of the Hutchinson Invitational.
“We played extremely hard. I was proud of our guys,” MHS coach Treg Fawl said. “We lost to that team by 16 points earlier this year. We definitely had our chances to win the game. Too many turnovers throughout the game cost us the win.”
Jayden Dukes led MHS with 18 points and Braeden Ediger added 11.
MHS plays Kapaun at 7:30 Monday in consolation action.
MHS (46) — Dukes 18, Ediger 11, Buckbee 8, Hoover 6, Morgan 3.
