Sophomore Theryn Hallock continues to have an outstanding season offensively, recording a career-high 43 points to lead the girls varsity basketball team to a 75-42. Junior Brittney Probst also had a great night shooting, scoring 10 points on the night. After a slow start to the game, FHC was able to bounce back smoothly and win the game by its largest margin of the season.

The first half was a bit of a slow start for the Rangers. FHC struggled with their ball pressure and getting after the Bengals defensively. Offensively, Theryn continued to be great and score while facilitating to other players. Transition defense really hurt the Rangers as well, as Ottawa scored almost all their points in transition. 

The second half was a much better half defensively for FHC. The Rangers only let up 14 points throughout the half by sending more players back on defense and off the offensive glass. FHC was also able to move the ball around and turn good shots into great shots. Even with some missed shots throughout the half, the Rangers still got open looks by moving the defense around from good passing. The time expired at the Rangers won decisively 75-42. 

This win puts FHC at 8-3 and an unblemished 4-0 in the OK White Conference. The Rangers now shift their attention to the arch-rival Forest Hills Northern Huskies. It will be a battle of undefeateds come Friday night, as FHN enters the matchup also 4-0 in the OK White. Last year the two teams split the matchups, so it will be important for the Rangers to win this game and get off to a hot start in this rivalry.
