Since the season started at the end of November, the boys basketball team has played a total of five games compared to the nine that have been scheduled for the girls. On Tuesday, the boys traveled to Woodbury to take on the Royals.
Woodbury was 3-1-0 on the season with Hastings coming in at 1-3-0. Woodbury took control of the game early and never let up. By the time the first half was finished, the Royals led 31-18. The Raiders kept the second half much closer, but the deficit was too much to overcome. The final of the game was 67-47 dropping the Raiders to 1-4-0.
No further stats were available. The boys will have another 14 days off until they play St. Thomas Academy on January 4 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Thomas Academy. They then host Tartan on January 7, also at 7:00 p.m.
The girls return to action on January 6 at home against Park of Cottage Grove at 7:00 p.m. then travel to Tartan on January 7 also at 7:00 p.m.
