Tuesday the #7 ranked Hayfield Vikings boy's basketball team traveled to Winona to take on the Cotter Ramblers. The Vikings played the game without second leading scorer Brady Kramer, who sprained his ankle the previous Friday. Cotter jumped out to a 16-9 lead, but Hayfield responded and took a 31-27 halftime lead. The Vikings took control in the second half and built as big a lead as 19 en route to a 63-51 victory. Cole Kruger led the Viking attack with 22 points and six rebounds. Trevor Anderson scored a career-high 21 points and also had a team-high six assists. Cole and Trevor combined to go 18-20 from the free throw line, as the team went 24-32. Brady Stevens added nine points and five rebounds, and Jeremy Stuart had a team-high seven rebounds to go with his eight points.

Friday the 8th ranked Rochester Lourdes Eagles came to Hayfield for a key HVL Gold division game. The Eagles jumped out to a 9-3 lead, but the Vikings quickly responded behind three-pointers by Drew Streightiff and Trevor Anderson. The Vikings took their biggest lead of the half at 22-13 after a three-point play by Cole Kruger. Shortly after that, Cole scored his 1000th career point, becoming the 9th boy in school history, and third in the last two years (Bobbie Stephens and Brady Kramer the other two), to accomplish the feat. The Vikings took a 32-28 lead to the locker room. After a Kruger three-pointer on the first possession of the second half, the Eagles got no closer than five points the rest if the way. Hayfield built their biggest lead of 14 midway through the half on another Anderson three and cruised to a 52-44 victory. Kruger led the way once again with 23 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Jeremy Stuart added 11 points and Anderson had nine on 3-6 three-pointers. The wins move the Vikings to 13-2 overall, 6-0 in the HVL Gold. Hayfield hosted #5 ranked Byron Tuesday in a battle for 1st place in the conference. They also travel to Stewartville on Friday.
