In a matchup of undefeated teams, the Hays Indians traveled to face the Hoisington Cardinals on December 15, 2020.
Both teams entered the contest ranked in their respective classifications, Hays at #6 in Class 5A and Hoisington at #5 in 3A. Each team had also not lost so far in the season.
Hays jumped out to an early lead. Hoisington would quickly tie and then take over control of the game. By halftime, the home team led 37 to 31.
The Indians began to claw back in the third quarter. By the fourth quarter they narrowed the Cardinal advantage until the score was tied at the end of regulation.
In overtime, Hays took advantage of some timely free-throws to build a four-point lead. That lead was trimmed to one with a three-pointer from Holt Hanzlick at the buzzer.
Below are some of the pictures I took at the game.
