The season came to a close Tuesday night for the Hershey boys basketball team at Sutherland, where the Panthers (5-18) battled Chase County (16-6) in the semifinals of the C1-11 subdistrict.

Chase County used a better shooting performance to win, 50-35.  

The Longhorns outscored Hershey 6-2 in the low-scoring first period, hitting two three pointers. In the second, Hershey stayed close and was only down by 7 points as the half ended,19-12.

But Chase County took command in the third quarter, scoring 13 points to Hershey's 8.

Both teams got their offense cooking in the fourth quarter. Hershey scored 15 points but couldn't slow down the Longhorns, who posted 18 points to seal the win. Hershey ends the season 5-19 and the Longhorns improve to 17-6. Jeffrey Dickey of Chase County led all scorers, pacing the Longhorns with 19 points. Teammate Kelton Fisher had 10. 

The leading scorer for the Panthers was Dustin Streeter with 6 points.

Hershey coach Dustin Jorgensen was proud of how his team stuck with it and never quit. 

“Chase County has some excellent shooters," Jorgensen said.

Chase County head coach Carl Zuege said Hershey played hard.

“We struggled with their high post,” Zuege said. “Our offense was struggling at first, but got going in the second half. Hershey has improved a lot since the last two times we met. It wasn't our best game, but we got the win."

Chase County advances the finals Thursday against No. 2 sub-district seed Cozad (15-8), who beat Gothenburg (12-12). 

The tip off will be at 7:30 p.m. in Sutherland.

The Haymakers overcame a tight first half to defeat Gothenburg, 60-46.

Conor Young of Gotherburg led all scores with 20 points. Cozad's leading scorer was Tanner Borchardt with 18.

Gothenberg coach Roger Koehler said, "We lost but we gave a tremendous effort. Cozad has a great group of athletes."
