North Fremont’s Luke Hill (10) takes a shot around a defender.

After losing their first game of the season to Malad last week, North Fremont bounced back in a big way blowing out Soda Springs and Aberdeen on Friday and Saturday.

North Fremont started the weekend out with a 52-26 blowout of Soda Springs in Ashton.

“It was a good physical game,” said North Fremont head coach Shannon Hill.

Jordan Lenz scored 13 points, Colton Orme scored nine points and Luke Hill scored eight points.

A night later, North Fremont followed a similar script to beat Aberdeen 51-29 on the road.

“We had a lead the whole game but they played a tough, physical game and slowed it down and it was kind of a grind out game.”

North Fremont only led by nine at halftime but really extended their lead in the second half.

The Huskies defense propeled them to victory.

“We were just being patient on offense and then matching their physicality with tough defense and rebounding,” Hill said.“That was the key.”

Jordan Hess led the Huskies with 15 points, Luke Hill and Tyler Shuldberg each scored eight points.

At 8-1 the Huskies have exceeded most expectations going into their conference schedule.

“People probably thought since we lost so many seniors that we were going to have kind of a down year but these kids have really put forth the work and effort to be successful and I think they’re being rewarded for that,” Hill said.

Hill is excited about where his team is headed.

“We have a long way to go to progress and get better but the kids are working hard and they have great attitudes,” Hill said.

North Fremont will open their conference play against Ririe in Ashton Thursday.

“I expect a tough battle,” Hill said. “It’s always a good game between us and Ririe and I don’t expect anything different this Thursday.”
