North Platte scored 14 unanswered points in the first quarter on Thursday against Gering and never looked back on its way to a 67-46 victory at the Dawg House.

"I just thought we set the tone early with our intensity and offensive rebounding," said NPHS coach Matt Kaminski.

The Dawgs (13-5) took a 15-9 lead a little over five minutes into the game after Kade Erickson made three-pointers on consecutive possessions.

After making his second and third treys of the game, Erickson then set up Shane Mauch for a reverse layup on the next bucket.

The lead then became 10 when Drew Callaghan got a layup to go down. Then on the other end, Callaghan blocked Grant Olsson.

Olsson, the starting center for Gering (11-8), appealed to the official that he thought Callaghan should have been called for a foul on the play. He was given a technical foul and Mauch made both of the ensuing free throws to make it 21-9.

Both teams traded three-pointers to end the quarter and it was 24-12 at the end of the first quarter.

North Platte couldn't keep up the torrid pace it set in the first quarter but Gering never made a run to get back in it either. Kaminski said that his team continued to play well on defense after it cooled a little on offense.

"We did a super job of moving our feet and pressuring the ball better as the game went along," he said.
