The Hillsboro Indians secured their 13th consecutive win Friday night by defeating the East Clinton Astros by the final score of 68-54.
It was a fairly dominant second quarter (HHS 23 ECHS 12) that keyed the victory. It was also the Indians three point shooting that was the difference in the period (turning a one point deficit into a halftime lead of twelve). And, from that juncture, HHS never looked back.
Ryan Scott, who hit a pair of 3's in the second frame, led Hillsboro with a team high 25 points (Brad Miller added 12). For Scott's offensive effort, he was named the WSRW "player of the game." After the game, Coach Miles Burton stated that his nine seniors were "great kids who last year accepted him as a first year coach." He then added that his seniors are in the process of "leaving a high standard for the future of Hillsboro basketball teams."
With the win, the Indians now have an overall mark of 17-2. HHS will be in action Saturday evening when they travel to Miami Trace to face the Panthers (HHS won the first meeting of the season series 73-54). If the Indians win, they will at least clinch a share of the FAC title.
