The Horns came out strong defensively holding Hawken to 6 first quarter points. The tempo picked up in the 2nd quarter as Lutheran West took a 6 point lead into the half. LW struggled shooting the ball in the second half, but a timely 3 by Eric Dill pulled the Horns to within 1 with just under two minutes to go. Hawken knocked down key free throws in the final minute and the Horns missed a couple game tying shots as the Hawks pulled out a 5 point win.
Lutheran West is back in action on December 29th on the road taking on Lake Catholic.
