Steve Fossman scored 14 of his game-high 21 points in the first half as Klukwan held a 37-26 lead at the break of their 65-61 win over Hoonah in Tuesday’s Gold Medal Masters play. The fast breaking Jilkats ran to a 51-31 advantage to open the second half and stretched that out to a 55-34 with 11:15 remaining.
“It was our hustle,” Klukwan’s Chris Wassman said. “We have size inside and we have a nice outside game, and our bench has been deeper than in past years.”
The game looked dismal for the Hoonah Masters.
