Zahnle leads Hayfield girls past PEM

Published 10:31 pm Thursday, January 9, 2014

The Hayfield girls basketball team bounced back from its worse loss of the season to one of its better wins of the year when it knocked off Plainview-Elgin-Millville (8-2 overall) 69-58 in Hayfield Thursday.

The Vikings (10-2 overall) led just 31-29 at the break, but they switched their defense to a diamond and one where Bhrett Zahnle focused on PEM’s Sarah Hart and it was effective. Hart scored just four second half points after scoring 13 in the first half and PEM committed 28 turnovers.

“Taking [Hart] out of the game was to our advantage,” Hayfield head coach Fred Kindschy said. “This was a nice win for us.”
