The Hastings High boys basketball team couldn’t have designed a better start to its home game with York on Saturday night.
In its first six possessions on offense, the team went 5-of-5 from the floor to open up an 11-5 advantage.
But, it ended up being some hot-shooting from the Dukes that would eventually decide the game.
York (3-2) hit 51 percent of its shots — and exploded for 26 points in a third quarter that saw the team go 6-of-6 behind the 3-point line — to post a 60-52 win.
“A good sign of a quality team is being able to fight through adversity, and I thought we tripped ourselves up with that,” HHS head coach Scott Rosno said of the quick start. “When some of our shots didn’t fall or when some of that pressure was getting tight, I didn’t think we stuck with the game plan.”
