Hanford boys knock KeHS into 4th

KENNEWICK -- Hanford and Kennewick entered Friday night's game in a three-way tie with Southridge for second place in the CBBN 3A.

With Hanford's 65-56 road victory against Kennewick, it's now a two-way tie between the Falcons and Suns.

Bear Braich scored 20 points and Aaron Neary had 18 to lead Hanford (7-9, 6-4).

The score was tied after the first and second quarters, but Hanford outscored Kennewick 16-9 in the third to get a little breathing room.

Kennewick pulled within two points in the fourth quarter, but Kurt Rueter hit a 3-pointer with about four minutes left that gave Hanford "a big push," Kennewick coach Bradyn Leyde said.

After that, it was a battle at the foul line.

"Hanford did a nice job of hitting free throws down the stretch to put the game out of reach," Leyde said.

Reggie Clinton had 17 points and Bryce Leavitt finished with 16 for Kennewick (7-9, 5-5), which visits conference leader Kamiakin at 7:30 tonight.
