Opening hoops weekend a success for some local teams

Richfield 51, Hurricane 50 (in Richfield)

Jackson Last’s phenomenal stat line wasn’t quite enough as the Tigers lost a heartbreaker to the hometown favorites.

Last scored 25 points, plus had eight rebounds, six steals and five assists.

The game was close throughout, with Hurricane’s biggest lead being four points at 50-46 after an Adam Heyrend free throw with under a minute to play.

Richfield’s Keldon Anderson made a shot in the lane to cut it to 50-48, then the Tigers turned the ball over with just seconds to play. The Wildcats set a play up for star shooter Josh Thalman and the senior guard buried a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Richfield the win. It was Thalman’s only trey of the game.

Hurricane, 0-2, has next weekend off before competing in the Coach Walk Classic at Dixie State Dec. 14-16.
