LHS boys earn come from behind win

After trailing at the half, the Lennox High School boys’ basketball team used a strong fourth quarter to get the 51-47 victory against Madison at home on Thursday, Dec. 14.

“Our game against Madison had a fourth quarter that was special to be a part of. We were down 17 points in the fourth quarter, but our guys found a way to come out on top by scoring 32 points in the fourth,” said LHS head coach Chris Buckmiller. “Before the season started, I mentioned that when we would face adversity this season, we would rely on our leadership to ensure we continued to play together and with attitude. They did exactly that. It was a true testament to their belief in one another even when nothing was going our way.”

Braxton Musser had a four-point play right in front of the Lennox student section to give the Orioles a 1-point lead with less than 20 seconds left. 

“That is a feeling that he will remember forever,” said Buckmiller. 

Layton Smith and Tate Gerdes sealed the game with clutch free throws. 

Leading the Orioles in the win was Tate Gerdes and Musser who finished with 14 and 13 points respectively. Gerdes also grabbed nine rebounds, had six assists and three steals.  Musser grabbed five rebounds and had one steal. Talan Diercks finished with nine points, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Talen Eich had six points, three rebounds; Smith and Teegan Musser each had three points, Boston Katzer two and Trey Gerdes one. 

On Monday, Dec. 18 the Orioles traveled to Canton and won 73-70. 

Lennox will be in action again on Saturday, Dec. 30 when they take on Waconia, MN at the Corn Palace in Mitchell. Game time is set for 9 p.m.
