From the start of the game it was Cason Richardson's night for Hesston.
The sophomore was on fire from deep, hitting three in the opening frame--including a buzzer beater--scoring 11 of his game best 23 points in a 16-4 start as Hesston rolled by Halstead 53-24 Friday.
For much of the quarter it looked like Hesston may shut the Dragons out; they hit just one field goal in the frame and three for the half.
Lakin Farmer did everything in his power to keep the Dragons in it, scoring all 9 of his points in the first to keep the deficit at just 11 going to the locker room.
But the second half was dominated by the Swathers, outscoring Halstead by 19 after the break to stay a perfect 8-0 on the season.
