Like they did in their opening round regional win at Cedar Grove-Belgium on Tuesday, the New Holstein Huskies found themselves down by double figures in their contest Friday night at Kiel.

Unlike Tuesday, the Huskies could not complete a comeback this time. Down 47-32 with 14 minutes left, New Holstein crawled back to within two at 60-58 with 49 seconds left before free throws by Keenan Manz and Travis Kohlmann, and a Mitch Endries bucket kept Kiel in front and the Raiders prevailed 65-60 over the Huskies in a WIAA Division 3 boys basketball regional semifinal win at Kiel.

The win advances Kiel, the number two seed, to Saturday night’s regional championship at top seeded Oostburg. Oostburg eliminated Random Lake, 66-39, in another semifinal Friday. Tip off is set for 7 pm.
