Hillsboro splits Trojan war with Southeast of Saline

Staff writer

Heading into Christmas break, don’t be surprised if finding consistency isn’t at the top of Trojan coaches Nathan Hiebert and Darrel Knoll’s wish list.

Six games into the year, it’s been pretty hard to come by for both Hillsboro basketball teams.

The Trojans closed the book on the first half of the season Tuesday, splitting with the purple-clad Trojans of Southeast of Saline.

In girls’ action, inconsistency bared its ugly face again for Hillsboro.

After a solid first quarter, Hillsboro collapsed in the second, surrendering a 9-0 run that left it doubled up at halftime, 24-12.

SES never looked back, sending the Trojans into the holiday break at 2-4 with a 42-31 loss despite 12 points from Teegan Werth.

The boys had better luck, exploding out of the gate for a 6-0 lead, en route to a 31-12 edge at halftime.

The purple Trojans never posed a threat with Hillsboro squaring its record at 3-3 with a 60-36 blowout.
