Hayter's trey sparks rout by Mustangs

MURPHY ' Hidden Valley's Jordan Hayter made good on only one shot from 3-point range, but it proved to be a backbreaker in the Mustangs' 61-40 boys basketball romp over North Valley on Friday.

With third-ranked Hidden Valley nursing a one-point lead in the waning seconds of the first quarter, Hayter found a seam and nailed a half-court shot at the buzzer to push Hidden Valley's lead to 15-11.

The Mustangs took charge from that point on in the Skyline Conference affair, outscoring North Valley 24-9 in the second quarter and eventually building a 61-30 lead with about four minutes to play.

I think that kinda took a little gas out of them, and it kinda sparked us, too, HV head coach Norm Hayter. We just kinda took the wind out of their sails after that.

Jordan Hayter finished with 16 points for the Mustangs (18-1, 7-0 Skyline), with senior brother Nick adding 22 and Jimmy Sager nine.

— Anthony Spain had 13 points and Andy Shannon 12 for North Valley (12-8, 5-3 Skyline), which entered the game tied with Phoenix for second place in the conference.

They played really hard, Norm Hayter said of the Knights. We just played really good defense tonight, maybe one of our best defensive efforts of the year.
