Sunblad shines but Nighthawks still struggle

Posted

HILL CITY— The Nighthawks’ Maizy Sunblad, with 24 points, led all scorers in their contest here on Friday, but it wasn’t enough to notch a win against the Hornets. Hill City/Northand topped the Nighthawks 56-40, to claim their first win of the season.
Sunblad provided most of the excitement on the night as she connected seven times from beyond the arc to keep Northeast Range in the hunt. Natalie Nelmark added seven points for the Nighthawks, while Morgan Bush added five, including a trey.
The Nighthawks let some opportunities slip away, particularly at the charity stripe, where they connected on just four of 18 chances. Meanwhile, Willa Koivisto fouled out.
For the Hornets, Lainee Spangler and Annika Spangler each scored 11 points, but they had scoring support from eight other teammates in the contest.
The Nighthawks return to action next Thursday, when they host Bigfork. Game time is set for 7:15 p.m.
