Posted By Community On @ 7:45 am In Today's Local Sports | Comments Disabled

Half of IMS’s four losses came at the hands of conference rival Lone Tree this season, but IMS outscored the Lions 20-4 in the second quarter to take a 21-point halftime lead and cruised in the second half to a 59-35 win.

IMS got the offense going early, establishing what ended up being dominating post-play [1], getting a combined 29 points from two senior forwards, Johnny Lackender with a game-high 18 and Brian Hagedorn posted 11.

Lone Tree, who was ranked 7th in class 1A, scoring 67.8 points-per-game, was held to a season-low 35.  IMS frustrated Lion leading scorer Bryan Forbes (19.1ppg) all night, holding him to nine points [2] including three-of-nine from the free throw line where he shot better than 82% this season.

The Lions were led in scoring by Tyler Gosnell’s 10 second-half points.  Peyton Thompson and Chance Miller each added nine for IMS who will play at Prairie-Cedar Rapids against Gladbrook-Reineck who defeated Lynville-Sully 45-42.
