2018 Hoisington Winter Jam Boys Championship – Pratt Greenbacks vs Hoisington Cardinals 1-20-18

The last game of the 2018 Hoisington Winter Jam saw the Hoisington Cardinals host fellow Central Kansas League member the Pratt Greenbacks. This year marked Pratt’s first time in the tournament and the championship game. The Cardinals came into the night as back to back champions of the Winter Jam.

The game featured a back and forth nature almost like a boxing match. One team would gain a lead only to see the other side fight back and tie or take a small lead. Pratt took a one point advantage into the locker room at halftime.

In the fourth quarter, Hoisington took advantage of working the ball inside and some free throws to gain a lead. The Greenbacks tried to launch multiple three-point shots, but none would fall. The Cardinals won the game with a 47 to 41 score.

They now have won the Winter Jam for three consecutive years.
