Whitnall boys basketball team sweeps two Woodland foes

Falcons tip Hawks, roll past Packers

Dec. 10, 2013

Nate Schaefer continued his brilliant start to the 2013-14 boys basketball season with two more games of 20-plus points as Whitnall won two Woodland Conference contests last week.

Schaefer poured in 28 points, hitting 18 of 21 from the free throw line, to lead the Falcons to a 63-50 victory over Cudahy on Friday night.

Whitnall clung to a 21-15 halftime advantage, then outscored the Packers 20-11 in the third period to go up 41-26.

Chris Kelnhofer put in 16 points and Tre Borland nine points for the Falcons, who improved to 2-2 in the Woodland Conference East Division and 3-3 overall.

Schaefer tallied 21 points on Dec. 3 as the Falcons nipped Greenfield 44-42. Mitch Brault added 13 points for Whitnall, which tried to take control with a 13-4 first-quarter lead, only to see the Hustlin' Hawks battle back.

Whitnall met Shorewood on Tuesday and will welcome Pius XI at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday as Woodland play continues.
