Huskies roll past Central City

Nothing much went wrong for the Aurora offense Saturday in Central City, scoring 52 points by halftime in a 77-27 win over the Bison.

Aurora ran through its bench, getting the entire team some playing time in the victory by the final horn.

The Huskies had several players in double figures led by Baylor Scheierman with 22 points while Kaleb Moural totaled 15 and Nate Boerkicher added 14.

Aurora (4-0) can now switch its focus to one of its biggest tests of the young season, traveling to York Friday night to battle the Dukes. Tipoff for that game is set for 7:30 p.m.

Aurora comeback falls short

The Lady Huskies trailed Central City 26-11 at the half after giving up a 16-2 run to the Bison. However, Aurora came charging back and had the deficit to a single possession, but couldn't finish the deal in a 39-35 loss at Central City Saturday.

It was a big third quarter for Aurora, using a 12-2 run of its own with three-pointers from Cassidy Knust, Megan Snyder and Jaelyn McDonald to make it a 28-23 game going to the fourth. 

A Knust three made it 31-28 with 6 minutes to play, but Aurora would not get any closer than that. 

Maya Nachtigal led the Lady Husky attack with 14 points while Knust added 10. 

Aurora (0-4) will be on the road again Friday night taking on York with a 6 p.m. tip.

Huskies bite Warriors in OT

Despite a wild fourth quarter that featured a blown lead followed by a gutty comeback, the Aurora basketball team walked to the bench at the end of regulation with a certain calmness.
Then Baylor Scheierman, cool as a cucumber his entire senior season thus far, drove the nail home.
The senior guard scored five of his team-high 27 points in the extra period as Aurora defeated Wahoo 76-74 in overtime Friday night on the road.

Aurora hosts Northwest in season-opening dual

Nothing came easy Thursday night for the Aurora wrestling team.
The Huskies hosted Grand Island Northwest, who edged the home team in the final dual tally, 48-36, in what was a competitive showdown to open the 2018-19 season.
Aurora coach Derek Keasling was satisfied with how his team came out and wrestled given the limited preparation time with a portion of his team coming off the successes from the football state title just a week prior.

Embrace the new rivalry

Considering the lack of high tension games down the stretch during the Husky football season, Friday’s basketball game against Wahoo had fans, players and certain sports writers searching for a sweat towel.
For the third time of the academic year, Aurora and Wahoo met in athletic competition after not playing each other for a couple decades. And to be frank, I hope Aurora-Wahoo becomes more of a tradition than a blip in history.
With Aurora’s uncertainty in classification, specifically for football, it makes it tough to tell if the series can blossom into one of the state’s best rivalries. Let’s make it happen, regardless.
The first time Aurora and Wahoo played football Sept. 7, it was talked about as arguably the top game in the state that week. The Huskies ended up winning big.
The two teams were on a collision course to meet in the semifinals of the C-1 playoffs, which was a much closer game than the first one. Aurora won that, too.

Aurora outlasts Wahoo in overtime thriller

For the third time in as many games, Aurora and Wahoo showed off for both allegiances of fans, but it was the Huskies who again came out on top. However, Friday night on the basketball floor, there was enough late-game drama that had the momentum swinging on virtually every possession. 

Baylor Scheierman, who led the Huskies with 27 points and 13 rebounds, took charge in the overtime period with a three-pointer followed by an emphatic slam dunk that gave Big Red a 75-70 lead as Aurora held on for a 76-74 win on the road in Wahoo that stamped itself as a game of the year candidate just two nights into the season. 

The Huskies led for most of the night until the late stages of the fourth when they fell behind by as much as 66-61 with 2:33 to play. Cade Reichardt put the team on his back to tie the game back up and even give Aurora a late lead before a free throw from Scheierman sent the game to overtime.

Lady Huskies start season 0-2

Things didn't get any easier for the Aurora Lady Huskies Friday night, hitting the road for the second time in as many days to take on the preseason Class C-1 No. 1 Wahoo Warriors. Severely outsized in length and height, Wahoo took advantage of its strengths most of the night in a 53-18 win. Aurora held the Wahoo offense in check for most of the first half until a few late threes gave the Warriors a 24-3 halftime lead. Maya Nachtigal led the Lady Huskies in scoring with nine while Megan Snyder added six. Aurora will be on the road again next weekend, traveling to Columbus Lakeview Friday night and Central City Saturday.
