NEW PALESTINE — It took three quarters for New Palestine to get going Friday night, but when it finally did, it was too much for Delta to handle.
The defending conference champ Dragons can thank Samson Haynes for inspiring NP’s fourth-quarter rally and Ryan Curry for finishing off the comeback. After their 56-50 victory over visiting Delta Friday, the Dragons are 6-2 overall and tied atop the Hoosier Heritage Conference standings with a 2-0 mark.
Down by as many as 12 in the first half and trailing by seven entering the fourth quarter, New Palestine scored 28 points in the final frame — its output through three quarters — to surge past the Eagles (4-4, 0-3 HHC) and overcome a lethargic start.
