HETTINGER - The Hettinger-Scranton girls basketball team erased a nine-point halftime deficit against Dickinson Trinity on Tuesday thanks to a 19-point third quarter that tied the game through three periods.

After that, the Night Hawks outlasted the Titans in the fourth, scoring 16 points to their 13, to come away with a 49-46 Region 7 victory.

“We played a great first half in terms of our shot selection and composure,” Dickinson Trinity coach Carter Fong said. “If not for our own foul trouble, we might have been able to extend our lead to double-digits.”

The Night Hawks rallied in the third, scoring 19 points to Trinity’s 10, to tie it at 33.

“In the second half, their pressure rattled us a bit, and our turnovers led directly to layups,” Fong said. “It was a great atmosphere and a one-possession game for most of the fourth quarter, and we had our chances. Our region is as tight as can be.”
