YODER – The Southeast High School boys’ basketball team closed out the regular season with a dominating 73-43 win over the Glenrock Herders on Saturday afternoon in Yoder.
“This was basically a carbon copy of the first game,” Southeast coach Crockett Herring said. “We were up 22-1 in the first game, and then they played with us the second and third. It was good win for us.”
This time around, it was a 14-0 lead in the first five minutes of the game, propelling them to a 30-point victory.
Much like the first time around, Glenrock and Southeast played even through the middle two quarters before the Cyclones stretched their lead further over the final eight minutes of the game.
A total of nine Cyclones cracked the scoring column for Southeast.
“I played some more kids to see where we were at and how deep we are,” Herring said. “There were some kids that hadn’t played a lot of varsity do some good things tonight.”
The team’s lone senior, Patrick Swank, led the team in scoring with 12 points. Juniors Brant Fullmer, Bodie Herring and Sawyer Anderson and sophomore Cord Herring added 10 points each. Junior Hayden Anderson grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds and dished out six assists.
Now the Cyclones turn their attention to the 2A East Regional Tournament at Willi Gym in Torrington. Southeast will open the tournament against Moorcroft at noon.
“We’ve seen them and hopefully we can duplicate our regular season win and then see who we play in the semifinals,” Herring said. “You have to win two before you lose two. That’s our motto.”
