Hudsonville Unity 70 Fremont 40
The Packer season came to an end on the home court of their Regional semi-final opponent, Hudsonville Unity Christian.
The Crusaders got to the Regionals by defeating OK Gold co-champs Catholic Central in their District Final, a nail-biter of a win over the highly regarded and state ranked Cougars.
The Packers also came in courtesy of a down-to-the-wire victory over Sparta.
This one would see no photo finish.
The Crusaders rained down 3 pointers all night and after inching ahead by 3 after one they outscored their visitors 17-7 in the second quarter to hit halftime holding a 28-15 lead. From there it was all Crusaders as they ran away with the win and advanced to the Regional final against GR Christian.
Coach Bowen: “I thought we fought hard in the first quarter. We didn't play scared or intimidated, but we missed quite a few easy shots, and just couldn't get any momentum on the offensive end. We kept the game close through the first half. I thought their pressure and their depth just wore us down in the second half. I thought we got really tired and started turning the ball over and that's when the game got out of hand. I'm still really proud of the boys for how we finished the season.”
Jordon McDonald scored 15 points and nabbed 8 rebounds in his final game as a Packer. Ben Mellema and Gavin Richards hit for 8 points apiece.
Fremont finished with a 13-12 mark and 6-6 in their inaugural WMC season.
