The Hawks had the lead by a basket for a couple minutes in the first half but fouls and relentless three point shots made by Feather River kept leaving the Hawks just a couple points behind each time they tried to get ahead. At the end of the first half it was 50-45.
The Hawks committed fouls early and turned the ball over a number of times which did not help the cause.
Towards the end of the first half as the game clock wound down confusion set in. As the shot clock buzzer sounded, the game clock was stopped but the refs allowed the game to play and didn’t blow a whistle. The result was an end of the half foul against LPC and one of two free throw shots made by Feather Rivers Jamel White.
LPC will have to come out in the second half strong, make some shots and not commit unnecessary fouls.
