Even longtime scorekeeper Greg Taylor said, “It’s been a long time
since we beat Warrensburg-Latham” following the Mount Pulaski
Hilltoppers 62-56 win over their Route 121 rivals, the Cardinals.
The Hilltoppers led the entire game and even had a lead as big as
Peyton Taylor led the game with 19 points and 13 rebounds for Mount
Pulaski. Taylor also had two huge dunks in transition.
Geezus Oliver also had 19 points for Mount Pulaski. Oliver's eight
points in the first quarter ignited the Hilltoppers right away and
by halftime Mount Pulaski was up 28-21.
Overall Mount Pulaski did a great job handling the pressure of
Cardinals’ Coach Vic Binkley’s team.
Mount Pulaski freshman Drew Martin did not play like a freshman and
his contribution of 9 points and his defensive effort along with
crashing the boards was key in the win.
Senior Trevor Hayes also connected 4 for 4 at the free throw line
late in the game to help seal the 62-56 victory.
A tremendous effort by the entire team and a huge win for Mount
Pulaski. The Hilltoppers record improves to 4-1 on the season.
