After a back and forth first half, the Wolfpack were down 43-30. At the start of the second half, Redemption Christian forced a few turnovers, led to easy baskets, and ran up the score. At one point, Redemption Christian was up by thirty, but Hyde made a bit of a comeback, only being down by 14 at one point. Eventually, Redemption Christian’s press proved to be too much, and carried them to a 78-55 win.
Although it was a loss, there were strong performances from Dexter Thompson ’15, who had 23, and Damon Gomes ’15, who played his first game of the season, finishing with 15 points and a handful of assists.
It was a tough loss, but a lot was taken from it, and we look to continue to improve going forward.
