Both teams entered the second round of the winner's bracket of the 31st annual Gerald Mitchell Hays City Shootout with the same mindset -- to attack.

Only the Hays High School boys' basketball team did it a lot better than Newton on Friday in a 60-35 win at the HHS gym.

"I was happy with the way we attacked. I knew Newton would press some and would be physical," Hays High coach Rick Keltner said. "I thought our fast break kind of got them out of their press early and I thought our pressure caused some turnovers and that's a tribute to our bench."

Strong second and fourth quarters were the difference for the Indians, who will move on to face Class 6A and WAC foe Garden City in today's championship game, which tips off at 8:15 p.m. at the HHS gym.

Garden City was a 56-36 winner over Great Bend on Friday.

While it took the Indians a while to get their post players going in an opening-round win over Riley County on Thursday, the complete opposite was true against Newton.

Junior Brady Werth opened the game with two quick baskets for Hays High to help the Indians build a 9-2 lead in the first minutes and a 15-8 lead heading into the second quarter.

Hays High (2-0) outscored Newton (1-1) 20-9 in the second quarter and led 26-9 midway through. The Indians led 35-17 at halftime behind 10 first-half points from senior guard Jordan Windholz.

The Indians fast and aggressive nature came to a halt in the third quarter, which saw Hays High held to just five points and Newton finish on a 9-0 run to cut its deficit to 40-27 heading into the fourth quarter.

"I know we were not really executing," Keltner said. "If I remember correctly we got some pretty good looks and didn't make them. That happens sometimes. Basketball is a game of runs, so you just got to keep plugging away."

Hays High found its rhythm again in the final quarter, holding Newton to only two field goals over the final eight minutes. The Indians matched their second quarter output by scoring 20 points in the fourth quarter to pull away for a 25-point victory.

"We are playing as a team and getting loose balls, hitting shots," said Werth, who finished with 12 points. "It was all flowing pretty well."

Windholz led Hays High with 13 points, and was one of 12 different players to score for the Indians. They had 13 players score in the opening game against Riley County.

Newton was paced by Tevin Berry's 11 points.

"We certainly have things to work on," Keltner said. "We had some things not go well, but I'm truly proud of the effort. These guys are just trying to get better every day."

Garden City 56, Great Bend 36

The Buffaloes got 9 points in the first quarter from senior Hunter Delgado and led Great Bend 18-11 after one quarter and 27-19 at halftime. Garden City outscored Great Bend 20-9 in the fourth quarter to pull away. Delgado finished with a team high 11 points, while Caleb Tramp had 10. Trey Ibarra led Great Bend with 14 points. Garden City will face Hays High in the championship game at 7 p.m. today, while Great Bend will face Newton at 3:15 p.m. in the third-place game.

Girls

DeSoto 56, Hays High 29

The Indians were held without a field goal until an Audra Schmeidler basket with 2:58 to play in the second quarter, helping the Wildcats to a 29-9 halftime lead. Hays High scored 20 points in the second half but failed to make any dent in the score. DeSoto made nine 3-pointers for the game, while the Indians were only 9 of 19 from the free-throw line. Hays High and TMP will face off in the seventh-place game Saturday morning, while DeSoto will get Colby in the fourth-place game.

Great Bend 52, Garden City 46

The Panthers pulled off the tournament's biggest upset, defeating a Garden City team that ranked No. 6 in Class 6A entering the season. The game was evenly played all the way through, with Garden City holding a 12-9 lead after a quarter and Great Bend leading 23-19 at halftime. Regan Unruh led Great Bend with 16 points, while Taryn Tempel and Jaymie Bernbeck each had 12 points for Garden City. Great Bend will face Riley County, ranked No. 2 in Class 3A, in Saturday's championship game at 5 p.m. at the HHS gym. Garden City will take on Newton in the third-place game.

Riley County 60, Newton 30

Riley County, ranked No. 2 in Class 3A, cruised past the Railers in the tournament's semifinal game. The Falcons outscored Newton 28-10 in the first half and 21-5 in the third quarter alone. Riley County had three players reach double figures, led by Taylor Oliver's 12 points. The Falcons made more 3-pointers (10) than 2-point field goals (9). Newton was led by Taylor Stahly's 9 points.
