It was a barnburner of a game tonight when two undefeated boys basketball teams met in Ishpeming as the Hematites hosted the Negaunee Miners.
The first quarter had Gabe Eppert of Ishpeming leave the game with a gash on the top of his head. The Hematites continued with a 10-5 lead at the end of the first. They were also leading with a 3 point shot at the buzzer to go up at the end of the half 17-13.
The Miners pushed back and Eppert returned in the 3rd quarter for the Hematites and the score would be tied at the end of the 3rd and 4th quarters, leading to overtime between the two tough teams in a cross town rivalry.
The Hematite boys next take on the Westwood Patriots on Friday, January 14th in Ishpeming. Pregame will be 7 pm and tip off will be at 7:30 PM right here on WRUP 98.3FM.
