Trojans nab two over Braves
Appearing in their first games in over a week, the Trojan basketball teams were able to shake off the rust Tuesday night to sweep the visiting Council Grove Braves.
In girls’ action, the Trojans took advantage of 30 Brave turnovers and a combined 31 points from the duo of Sienna Kaufman and Teegan Werth to topple the third-ranked Braves, 49-44.
After trailing the Braves throughout the majority of the game, and by as many as 13, the Trojans rallied in the final minute of the game to overtake the lead and hang on.
The victory improves the Trojans to 8-6 on the year.
The boys had a back-and-forth battle early on, but began pulling away by halftime en route to a 64-39 win.
Hillsboro boosts its record to 12-2 overall.
The Trojans return to action Friday hosting Pratt.
