Maxwell, Ne - It was a 3 pointer shootout Friday night in Maxwell as the Wildcats took on highway 30 rival Hershey in boys basketball. Both teams are below .500 but you wouldn't have guessed that by the hot shooting by both teams. Hershey's Kellan Spearman, a Sophomore hit 8 three pointers in the game, including going 7/7 from behind the arc to start the game, five of those three pointers came in the first quarter getting Hershey a 32-29 lead at the end of the first period.

The game would see 4 lead changes, and 5 ties, but eventually Hershey prevailed with a 55-47 win.
