Rockets Hand Hillcrest Boys First Loss

By Craig Olson - Underwood, MN

The Underwood boys basketball team turned in a strong defensive effort on Thursday night as they handed the Hillcrest Comets their first loss of the season, winning 42-36 in Underwood. 

The Rockets led 22-20 at the half. 

Brodey Rocholl was the only Underwood player in double figures with 17 points. Winston Heifort added 8 points and Camen Andrews finished with six points. 

“This was the best defensive performance we have had this season,” said Underwood Head Coach Jesse Arbuckle.  “When playing a tough defensive team like Hillcrest, we knew we had to match that, and I was proud of how the guys responded.”   

Underwood (2-3) will face Pelican Rapids on Thursday night at 7:45pm in the first round of the Pelican Rapids Holiday Tournament. 

Kric Konynenbelt led the Comets with 11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals.  Zak Zwiers added 7 points and 7 boards, and Sander Frustol contributed 7 points and a team high 8 rebounds.

The Comets shot just 30% (12/40), made onlly 4-of-14 (29%) three-pointers and shot just 47% (8-17) from the free throw line.

"The Rockets had a strong defensive night, outrebounded us, and were more balanced in the offensive attack than we were tonight," said Hillcrest Head Coach Gregg Preston.

Hillcrest (3-1) is off until January 4 when they will face Parkers Prairie at Hillcrest Lutheran Academy.
