Posted: Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2013




ASHTON The AFC boys basketball team was stuck in a four game losing streak and was looking for a way to snap it at the expense of the Kirkland Hiawatha Hawks.

Ermir Ramadani was the game leaders of each category and finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Other standouts were Troy Mairs with 17 points, 19 rebounds and two blocked shots, Bret Gittleson with nine points, seven rebounds and two steals and Nick McClanahan with seven points and three steals.
