Boys Freshman Basketball rolls East Grand Rapids 58-23


The FHC boys freshman basketball team had been on a roll going into its game versus East Grand Rapids on Thursday; the Rangers had won by an average of about 34 points a game in their first six games. A huge rivalry game would be the key motivation for the team in this game. Another dominant performance by the freshman team led them to a blowout win over the Pioneers, demolishing the rival by a score of 58-23. A few key players in this matchup were freshmen Quincey Henry and Mason McDonald. Quincey had 13 points in his best game of the season, and Mason had a solid game too by chipping in 10 points, with most coming in the 3rd quarter. 

FHC got off to a fast start once again, defending tough which led to easy transition points and an early timeout from EGR. Freshman Ty Hudkins had 6 points in the first quarter, which led the team. The Rangers scored 18 points in the opening quarter and held a double-digit lead. However, FHC did struggle in the second quarter. The Rangers’ defense led them once again, but they only scored six points in the second quarter. From there, the team got hot, and East had no chance. They shot the ball well in the second half and continued to play great defense. FHC would take care of business, winning 58-23.

The Rangers are now 7-0 and improve their conference record to 6-0. They play this weekend on Saturday versus Lowell at home. A primetime game at 1:30, the Rangers look to continue the momentum against a struggling Lowell squad.
