No. 9 Wall Too Much for Ballinger
WALL, TX— The 9th-ranked Wall Hawks glided to another win this week 62-30 over the Ballinger Bearcats.
It was ugly from the start, but the Bearcats were a team full of hustle. They made the Hawks really work the ball around the court.
“Our guys did a great job preparing this week and this weekend for this game,” said Hawks Head Coach Brian Blackburn. “They knew it was a big game.”
The Bearcats came out with an aggressive three-quarter court press in the first quarter to try and slow the Hawks’ growing momentum.
“I think our guys handled the press okay, we had a couple bad passes in a row,” Blackburn recalled. “But overall I thought we handled it pretty well.”
Sterlyn Hartman was on fire for the Hawks. Hartman knocked down 21 points on his own. He lead his team with speed and aggression up and down the court.
A brick wall on defense was the Hawks’ Baylor Halfmann. Halfmann was a large presence under the basket. As well as a swatting machine causing many turnovers in the Hawks favor.
“We really came out with a lot of energy on the defensive end,” said Blackburn.
The Wall Hawks improve to 24-2 overall and 6-0 in district. Next up for the Hawks is Reagan County on Friday. The Bearcats fall to 19-6 and 4-2 in district. Ballinger will meet TLCA on Friday.
