The Hawks took care of business at home Tuesday night as they defeated Bloomington High School 70-37 in a varsity boys basketball contest from Fairbury.
Prairie Central was led in scoring by Tyler Curl with 31 points, which is a new career high, including six three-pointers. Levi Goad contributed 17. Talen Steidinger had 6, Gavin Tredennick had 5, Gage Steidinger contributed 4, Lane Whitfill had 3, while Cody Steidinger and Simon Zimmerman each had 2.
Hawk head coach Trevin McCulloh believes it is all about sharing.
“Right now, we are sharing the ball well, we’re moving the ball,” McCulloh told Fairbury News after the game.
McCulloh admits things are not always going to be this easy as a big road test comes Friday night when PC travels west on Route 24 to El Paso-Gridley High School to battle the Titans.
“We need a test. We need to have one of those games where our back is against the wall and see if we truly learned from that Lexington game.”
Following Friday’s road game at EPG, PC is back home to take on Bismarck Henning Saturday afternoon. The Hawks are now 6-1 on the season after the win over Bloomington.
