New England’s Levi Hollinger scored an early three and kept the pressure on as his 27 points led the New England Tigers to a 54-39 victory over the visiting Killdeer Cowboys Friday night.

The Cowboys couldn’t put the ball in the hoop as their 3/15 showing from the field led to an early 9-6 deficit after eight minutes of action. The Cowboys did receive buckets from Calum Blankenship, Trenton Rohr, and Brock Pittsley in the first quarter but the poor shooting percentage and six turnovers made it tough to stay even.

The Cowboys weren’t able to do much better from the field in the second eight minutes either. Rohr started the scoring with an early lay-up, Lewis Dobitz hit a corner shot and Cody Johnson also nailed a bucket but those were the only three makes in 14 attempts. Rohr added a free throw, but a four minute scoring drought in the middle of the quarter enabled the Tigers to grab the 21-13 lead in a ballgame filled with turnovers.

Killdeer doubled their 13 point first half output in the first eight minutes of the second half. Calum Blankenship totaled seven points in the quarter to lead the Cowboy attack but it wasn’t enough to keep pace with the Tiger’s 17. Killdeer found themselves down 38-26 going into the final eight minutes of play.

After New England scored the first bucket of the final quarter, Riley Blankenship and Rohr each scored to cut the margin to 30-40 before a five point Tiger run put this out of reach.

Pittsley was able to drill a free throw and bucket and Rohr was able to score again on a nice steal and breakaway but trading buckets wasn’t going to work as the Tigers used key shots by Hollinger to maintain the lead.

Dobitz and Pittsley finished the scoring but it was too little too late and the Tigers had the 15 point win.

Killdeer was 16/66 from the field and were paced by Rohr’s 11 points. Calum Blankenship added 9 with Pittsley two behind. Dobitz and Riley Blankenship each had 4 while Brady Roshau and Cody Johnson each had 2 points.

With the loss, the Cowboys dropped to 3-5 on the season.
