By William

BENNINGTON – The Moundridge basketball team went on the road Tuesday and used a dominating first half to power their way to a 32-point, 65-33 victory over Bennington.

Twenty-Seven points in the first quarter gave the Wildcats a huge 18 point advantage and when they put another 18 points on the scoreboard in the second quarter they took a commanding 45-17 lead into the halftime break before cruising in for the final 32-point win.

Moundridge connected on 24-of-41 shots from the field for 58%, including 50% from beyond the three-point line by hitting eight of them. Combine that with 15 steals, the Wildcats dominated Bennington from the opening tip to the final buzzer.

Landon Kaufman connected on five three-pointers on his way to leading the Wildcats with 25 points while Jon Schlosser put 19 points by his name in the scorebook. Logan Churchill and Corbin Unruh chipped in with eight and seven points respectively.

Schlosser led the team in rebounds with eight while Kaufman topped Moundridge with five assists and five steals.

The victory evens the Wildcat record on the season at 4-4 as they now prep for a big game Friday on the road at Hutchinson Trinity.
