Frazee outscored Breckenridge 29-23 in the second half, but they were ultimately unable to overcome a late Cowboys first half run and fell by a score of 72-55. 

The Hornets trailed the Cowboys by single digits for much of the first half until the Cowboys went on a big run late in the first half to take a 49-26 lead at halftime. The Hornets were able to put together several runs in the final 18 minutes of action to cut into the Cowboys lead and make the game competitive late. 

Carter Sonnenberg drives to the basket on Thursday night. He finished with a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

The Hornets shot just 30 percent from the field, but pulled down 20 offensive rebounds that led to 15 second chance points. They also had 28 points in the paint and had 32 deflections in the loss. Both the Cowboys and Hornets were in a bit of foul trouble throughout the game as they combined for 40 team fouls.

Carter Sonnenberg led the way offensively as he recorded a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds. Adam Vigen joined him in double figures with 11 points to go along with 3 assists and 3 rebounds. 

Nathan Longfors just missed out in joining them in double figures as he finished with 9 points. 

The loss drops the Hornets to 2-8 on the season and 0-5 in the Heart O’ Lakes Conference.
