By KRIS MILLS - kmills@shelbynews.com

The Waldron boys' basketball team was outscored 17-5 in the first quarter on Friday at home against South Decatur before rallying back into the game. The Mohawks, led by 24 points and six threes from senior sharpshooter Cole Adams, fell just short, however, in a 66-55 Mid-Hoosier Conference loss.

Waldron (2-17, 0-6 MHC) was paced by senior guard Cam Wells and junior forward Zane Smith with eight points each. Sophomore Parker Huffman added five points.

Za. Smith also grabbed eight rebounds -- a team high.

The Mohawks scored 20 points in the second and third quarters, outscoring the visiting Cougars 20-10 in the third, but put up just 10 points in the fourth and final period.

Waldron returns to action Tuesday at Greenwood Christian.
