Pierre Boys Upset Mitchell at the Corn Palace

The Pierre Governor boys basketball team has their signature win of the season as they knocked off the number three ranked Mitchell Kernels on the road with a 46-44 win.

Lincoln Kienholz and Matthew Hanson were the leading scorers for the Govs as they finished with 19 and 12 respectively. Pierre trailed 38-35 heading into the fourth and found themselves down by six midway in the fourth quarter. However an 8-0 gave Pierre a 44-42 lead and Kienholz found his way to the bucket for a layup to lift the Govs to a 46-44 lead with just 21.5 seconds left in the contest. Zane Alm missed a bucket under the basket at the buzzer to give the Governors the win.

Pierre improves to 5-7 on the year with the win while the Kernels fall to 10-2 as the three game winning streak was snapped by the Govs. Pierre will now face the Sioux Falls Washington Warriors on Thursday at home.
