Wolves catch fire in home win over Townsend

It might be an understatement to say the Three Forks High School Boys' Basketball team had a tremendous start to their January 26 home game against Townsend. The Wolves came out firing on all cylinders on both sides of the court, taking a 28-3 lead at the end of the first quarter and a 49-13 lead into halftime on their way to an 83-39 win over the Bulldogs.

Following the game, Three Forks Head Coach Terry Hauser lauded the offensive play from his team.

"We've been struggling since the Manhattan game to put the ball into the hoop. I told the team we're more than capable. It's just a mentality. It's confidence, it's swagger, and it's believing in yourselves. On our scouting report for Townsend, I said we're more than capable of 70 or 80 points, and it's going to happen. We needed that tonight, we needed to see the ball going in," said Hauser.

The Wolves were led in scoring by junior Hunter Feddes, who had a game-high 21 points.

"It was his (Feddes) best game all year, and it was huge for us. He's been playing great on the defensive end all year, and he shot the ball tremendously tonight," Hauser said.

Dylan Swenson and Dryden Frisinger were also in double figures with 12, and Shane Williams had eight. Colten Hayder and Sam Tesoro finished with seven points. Devon Long and Kanon Reichman finished with six, and Sawyer Andersen and Caleb Van Vleet added two.

Along with a strong night on offense, Hauser praised the play of his defense against the visiting Bulldogs.

"With that kind of effort on defense, we can beat anybody, especially if we shoot like we did tonight. I love our defensive effort every single night. It's how we grind out wins.

Three Forks (10-5, 8-1 5B) went on the road on January 26 and won 47-33 over Lone Peak.

Swenson led the team in scoring with 12, Van Vleet was also in double figures with 10, Tesoro finished with nine, Williams had six, and Hayder finished with four. Feddes, Frisinger, and Reichman added two points.

The Wolves opened the busy week of action on January 23 at Manhattan Christian, losing 58- 51 on the road.

Reichman and Tesoro both scored 10 points for the Wolves. Swenson finished with seven, Frisinger, Feddes, and Hayder had six, Van Vleet had four, and Williams added two.
