NC drops district opener against Huffman 18 December 2007

Posted by Joe Musarra in Analysis, Game recaps, New Caney, Updates.

Despite jumping out to an early lead, the New Caney boys were unable to overcome Huffman Hargrave tonight after the Falcons emerged in the second quarter to break a 15-15 tie by hitting two quick 3-pointers. Huffman never looked back after taking the six-point lead, eventually taking a 55-48 win.

New Caney guards Danny Fernandez and Kevin Boyd helped the Eagles to to a hot start, as Fernandez kicked in eight first-quarter points, while Boyd added a 3-pointer.

Huffman’s stout defense took over during the second quarter, holding the Eagles to only five points and forcing several ill-advised shots.

New Caney fought back hard in the second half but was never able to close the gap. Huffman nursed a six-to-eight-point gap for the remainder of the game, fending off a flurry of Boyd 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.

Fernandez and Boyd lead all Eagle scorers with 19 and 13 points, respectively, with 12 of Boyd’s points coming off of threes.
