The Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk girls and Washington Demon boys came away with wins in last night’s rivalry basketball battles. The girls’ game started out as a back-and-forth shootout, with each team hitting four three-point field goals and Mid-Prairie leading Washington 16-15. But the Golden Hawk defense would step up the rest of the way, stretching their advantage to 10 points at halftime. Holding the Demons down in the second half and hitting eight three-pointers as a team earned Mid-Prairie a 55-40 victory and a ninth straight win. Hawks head coach Danny Hershberger told KCII Sports his team got there thanks to a group effort that’s becoming a habit.
