Hermann’s Chet Moeckli (22) works for position for a rebound against Warrenton’s Randy McRoberts. Moeckli scored 8 points in the game against the Warriors.

With an intimidating presence inside, thanks to a 6-foot, 8-inch senior, the Warrenton Warriors Tuesday night pushed the Bearcats to the Consolation side of the bracket of the Hermann Invitational Basketball Tournament. Warrenton claimed the opening-round game by a score of 54-38.

The Bearcats attack was led by sophomore forward Trent Anderson’s 11 points.

Hermann will take on the Bourbon Warhawks tomorrow night at 7:30 in the Hermann Middle School gym.
