Trojans Rally to Force Overtime, Beat Nuggets 62-53

By Craig Olson - Barnesville, MN

Barnesville fell behind 26-11 midway through the first half, cut the lead to 7 at halftime and came all the way back to tie the game at 53-53 at the end of regulation on Friday night, forcing overtime against the Hawley Nuggets in a game that featured a tournament type atmosphere in Barnesville.  The Trojans outscored the Nuggets 9-0 to win the game 62-53.

"This was an outstanding comeback by our team," said Assistant Coach Tracy Hinsz.  "We played so well together as a team and had several players contribute in many different ways."

Charle Aakre scored 21 points and pulled down 7 rebounds to lead the Trojans.  Logan Bang had 14 points, 8 rebounds, 5 steals and 2 assists.  Brooks Martinson was also in double digits with 10 points.  Adam Tonsfeldt had a solid all-around floor game with 8 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals.

Barnesville shot 44% (22-50) from the field, but went 0-for-8 from beyond the arc.  They made 18-of-26 free throws and won the rebounding battle 39-26.

Hawley was 21-for-46 (46%) from the floor, but hit just one of thirteen treys.

The Trojans (1-1) play DGF in Glyndon on Thursday night.
