The Holly varsity boys basketball team may have played its best game of the season, but it came against a tough foe — Flushing.

 The Bronchos (0-3) trailed just 23-20 at halftime, but Flushing took over in the fourth quarter.

 “They are so big and athletic. They are solid,” Holly varsity boys basketball coach  Steve Dehart said. “It was 23-20 at halftime, but then they outscored us 19-6 in the third quarter and that was about it.

 “We probably played our most complete game tonight, so I was happy with what we got out of our kids. I’ll give a feather in the cap to Flushing. ... We played as good as we could’ve but it got away from us in that  one quarter.”

 Bryce Goings led the Bronchos with 10 points, while Logan Dzendzel had nine points. Alec Lewis netted seven points. Andrew Simmons, Jacob Welch and Ryan Ortiz chipped in six points each.

 Alex Long led Flushing with 20 points.

 Holly returns to action today with a home game against Ortonville Brandon Saturday at 5 p.m.

 “We finally get to play a home game,” Dehart said.
