Tigers hold off Denmark to earn victory

DENMARK – Howards Grove outscored Denmark 28-13 in the first half to pave the way for a 47- 42 boys basketball win here Friday night.

The nonconference win upped the Tigers’ record to 6-3. The Vikings fell to 1-7.

“I thought it was a great team effort from start to finish,” said Tiger head coach Eric Worth.

“We let them back in the game late with a couple of turnovers and they were able to capitalize by hitting a couple threes. I thought our guys stayed the course, kept fighting and finished nicely.”

The Vikings rallied in the second half, outscoring Howards 29-19.

Junior guard Ethan Brinkman led Howards’ scoring with 15 points and assists, four. Senior guard Austin Edge contributed 10 points and a team-high eight rebounds.

“We had some really nice contributions from Jonah Gerber and Zach Fritz off the bench,” said Worth.
