Old Dominion’s speed and quickness proved to be a factor Friday night as Hebron dropped a heartbreaker, 42-39 at home. It was the second time this season the Eagles were trumped by Old Dominion.
“We just didn’t get into a rhythm,” head coach Tri Nason said. “Nobody was hot. That’s probably what hurt us the most, our lack of flow and rhythm on offense.”
The Eagles had the lead after the first quarter, 14-10 before they went cold on the offensive side, scoring just four points over the next eight minutes.
“We had a lot of shots that weren’t falling and missed a bunch of free-throws,” Nason said. Hebron was 4-of-12 from the line for the game. They trailed at the half 21-18.
The second half was a little bit more even, Old Dominion had stretched the lead to four heading into the fourth quarter, where Hebron couldn’t rally enough to get the win, despite outscoring the visitors, 10-9.
Ben Pearson finished with a team-high seven points while David Kinard chipped in with six. Hayden Carty and Will Corben Rogers each had five.
The Eagles host Immanuel in their final home contest of the season next Monday, but there are still two more district games left to play.
If the Eagles win out, and defeat Kemper by more than a point, they will more than likely wrap up the number two seed heading into the district tournament.View more articles in:
