Early surge takes Verden past Binger-Oney

VERDEN — Trystan Morgan was Verden’s man of the night as he led his team past Binger-Oney 59-45 on Friday.

The Tigers (4-5) jumped out to an early lead in an otherwise neck-and-neck game. Morgan finished the night with 27 points to lead the floor. Dusty Keil contributed 14 for the Tiger cause.

Keil did most of his work in the first half, when Verden leapt to a 17-9 lead coming out of halftime. Some aggressive defense from the Tigers created scoring chances off of turnovers that they capitalized. Keil was at the center of it, using his speed to easily outpace the Bobcats (5-8) down the court.

But Binger-Oney kept things close in the second frame. Weston Kerlick hit a three about halfway through the second quarter to halt a Tiger run. He finished the night with 13 points. But for every basket the Bobcats put in, Verden answered and went into halftime up by ten.

Morgan continued to plague the Binger-Oney zone defense in the second half. The tall point guard called his own number of occasion and was efficient with his shots. Colby Sweeney tried to answer back for the visiting Bobcats and finished with 12 points, most of those coming in the second half.

A so far difficult season continued for the Verden girls as they fell 64-33 against a hot-handed Binger-Oney.

Four three pointers from Hannah Wilson in the first half alone set the tone for the Lady Bobcats (9-4). Wilson finished the night with 26 points and was a big part in building a big lead that the Lady Tigers (0-9) were not able to overcome.

After the first quarter ended at 6-6, Wilson went off. She finished the half with 16 points, 12 of those from beyond the arc. Just when Binger-Oney found its shot, Verden lost theirs. The Lady Tigers managed five in the second frame, but the visitors were out of sight by the break with 22 of their own.
