Twin Lakes Conference heavyweight battle in Pocahontas.
Last Friday night the Pocahontas Area Boys Varsity Basketball team lost a Twin Lakes Conference match-up against the Newell-Fonda Mustangs. The Indians, now 6-2, were led in scoring by Tanner Youngberg and Austin Roetman who each had 15 points. Although the Indians had a strong first quarter, they were unable to extend their lead the rest of the game. The Mustangs hit a free throw to go up 1 point with 3 seconds left in the game. Youngberg's desperation shot at the buzzer was no good, and the Indians lost 61-60. The next couple of games for the Indians are Tuesday 1/13 against Clarion-Goldfield and Friday 1/16 against G-T/R-A.
