Hornets finish fourth at Whitharral Invitational

By DEREKLOPEZ

The Sudan Hornets’ varsity basketball team fell short in their efforts on Saturday finishing fourth overall, after falling to the Whitharral Panthers, 61-36 in the third-place game at the 33rd annual Whitharral Invitational. Chris Albus scored the games first points on a lay-up, but Ruben Rodriguez answered with a lay-up for Sudan, tying the game, 2-2, with just over seven minutes to play in the opening quarter. Albus scored back-to-back layups and then Kody Gonzales drew a block on Rodriguez, earning a trip to the free-throw line. He split the attempts as Sudan took a time out with 5:07 to play in the first quarter, trailing the Panthers, 7-2.

 

Out of the break, Sudan picked up a steal as Christian Montes found Rodriguez for a lay-up, but on the other end, Albus scored a put-back off of the miss by Matthew Lopez, making the score, 9- 4, with 2:16 to play in the quarter. Albus was fouled on an attempt by Alex Conley; he made both free throws, stretching their lead to, 11- 4.
