If you’re like me, I always ask for a second helping of Thanksgiving dinner. I love turkey, stuffing and the salads. Well, on Saturday the Hononegah Girls Basketball team played two games at the Dundee-Crown Thanksgiving Tournament at Dundee-Crown High School.

Game 1 was a comfortable 59-25 win over the host Chargers of Dundee-Crown. The Indians defense only allowed 6 points after halftime. The Lady Indians scored 23 points in the third quarter which allowed them to have a running clock for most of the fourth quarter of the first game of the day.

Game #2 was against Palatine. This saw the ladies get a 45-33 win and improve to 4-o on the 2023-2024 season. Jordan Dimke had 22 points and Jordan Johnson added 10 in the 12 point win.
