Three-pointers take down Comets
FVL outscores Waupaca in second half
By Greg Seubert
The three-point shot turned out to be an effective weapon for the Fox Valley Lutheran boys’ basketball team.
The Foxes hit seven of them in the second half Feb. 12 in a 68-62 North Eastern Conference win over the Waupaca on the Comets’ home court.
Waupaca led by as many as eight points in the first half, but the Foxes outscored the Comets 10-3 to cut the lead to 31-30 at the break.
The Foxes’ Jared Kraftzenk heated up in the second half, as he hit consecutive threes to give his team a 36-31 lead.
Waupaca eventually took a 51-49 lead on Michael Johnson’s two free throws, but that turned out to be Comets’ last lead of the game, as Stephen Baehman gave the Foxes the lead for good with a three.
FVL eventually built an eight-point lead. The Comets were able to cut the lead to 66-62 on Tony Blackwell’s three-point play, but Waupaca never got any closer.
Logan Bunge, Bre’on Sease and Blackwell led the Comets with 16, 15 and 14 points, respectively, while Kraftzenk led all scorers with 25.
