Woodlands Tops Hastings for Fourth Straight Win

HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – Woodlands big man Fred Bowers made his home under the basket where he scored 16 points and pulled down 12 rebounds Friday to lead the visiting Falcons to a 63-51 victory over Hastings.

The Falcons, who have won four straight games, lifted their record to 9-3 in a game that featured a tight Hastings defense that seemed to frustrate the Woodlands running game.

Bowers, who was a dominant presence inside the Hastings zone defense, struggled with some foul trouble in a game that was littered with referees’ whistles

“It was a little frustrating because we didn’t run our offense as well as we usually do,” Bowers said. “There were a lot of fouls. I don’t normally get into foul trouble. I tried to focus on getting the ball down low and scoring.”

While Hastings concentrated on slowing down the Falcons, the Woodlands defense did its job handling the Yellow Jackets.

“We play good defense most games,” Falcons guard Justin Smith said. “We wanted to get the ball down low (to Bowers) and there were a lot of fouls. We didn’t make as many free throws as we should have, but we made them at the end of the game.”

Woodlands guard Reece Williams scored nine first-half points to lead the early push but was in foul trouble early and finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, including three important free throws that helped the Falcons keep their lead late in the game.
