THOMAS, N.D. -- It wasn't a matter of"who" was go- ing to win the St. Thomas B squad girls basketball tournament last Saturday night, it was a matter of "which" was going to win it.

By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- After falling be- hind by as much as ten points early, the Ag- gie boy's basketball team battled back but couldn't get over the hump here Thursday night and dropped an important region game 66-59 to the HN Thunder. Hatton-Northwood would get the ad- vantage early, going up 5-0 and extending that lead to eight before the Aggies started to creep back in this one. A three by Lan- don Wood started a seven point quarter for the senior and the Aggies stayed close at 17- 10 after one. In the second quarter the Aggie inside game got rolling with three baskets each by Jordan Omlie and Adam Zavalney, but every time the Aggies would make a run the Thun- der would answer and led by eight at the half. The Aggies started hot in the second half and closed the lead to four on their first two possessions. But again the Thunder would come back with a short run of their own. The two teams repeated that scenario three times in the third and no gain was made by the Aggies who matched the Thunder with 21 third quarter points. Things would get ever closer in the fourth. A three pointer by Dylan Chally and a basket by Omlie would have the Aggies within two points with five minutes to play but that was as close as it would get as the Thunder went 7 of 9 from the free throw line late in the game to salt this one away. Jordan Omlie and Adam Zavalney led the Aggies on the night with 16 points each. Dy- lan Chally added 8. Ben Johnson had 21 for Hatton-Northwood. The Aggies record now stands at 2-9 on the season.
