Fremont sophomores show poise in region-opening win at Weber

PLEASANT VIEW — Of the six field goals Dallin Hall made for Fremont on Friday at Weber, there was really only one that he celebrated.

And he really let loose.

It was about halfway through the fourth quarter when Silver Wolves sophomore Baylor Harrop drove the length of the floor and flicked a pass to Hall under the bucket.

Hall made it and got a foul call, part of his game-high 21 points in a 67-54 win for Fremont at Weber to open Region 1 play.

“Baylor had a great pass to me on that one, man, I wasn’t even ready for it. He just hit me and I was so pumped because that was an amazing pass,” Hall said. 

Perhaps the other reason that basket caused such an animated celebration was that it came just as Weber, led by Hudson Schenck’s 19 points, was starting to chip into a big deficit.

Momentum, snuffed.

“I thought everyone was good, you know? Especially the young guys, they played like seasoned veterans, to be honest with you,” Fremont head coach Corey Melaney said. “I thought Harrop was really phenomenal, I thought Dallin was really good.” 

The two Fremont sophomores — Hall and Harrop — have been two of the biggest playmakers for the 10-2 Silver Wolves, who grabbed their seventh straight win of the season Friday.

Harrop had 10 of his 14 points in the first half, including a personal 8-0 run in the second quarter that flipped the score from 14-11 for Weber to a 19-14 Fremont lead before it ballooned to double figures.

But it wasn’t always a double-digit lead in favor of Fremont.

For the first four minutes of Friday’s contest, anyway, it appeared as though Weber would coast after the Warriors went ahead 13-2 and forced a Fremont timeout.

Afterward, the shots Fremont took that so barely rolled off the rim early in the first quarter started to fall. It was Weber’s shots, then, that started to look so close to dropping in before rolling out.

What followed was a 32-6 run by the Silver Wolves over 12-plus minutes of game action.

“The ball finally started falling for them a little bit, and again, the momentum changes for you,” Weber head coach Ryan Jones said. “We go from a 13-point quarter with a good lead to a five-point quarter and now trying to come from behind.”

The run started with a Dallin Hall 3-pointer, continued to halftime where Fremont led 26-18 and went all the way to Cade Hadley’s steal and layup that made it 34-19 with 6:08 left in the third quarter.

Schenck did all he could to will Weber to a comeback in the second half, scoring 16 of his 19 points in the last two stanzas. 

The crafty junior was nearly unstoppable off the dribble, but he drained a 3-pointer and a layup to bring the score to a 57-50 deficit before Fremont eventually closed it out.

Brandon Capener added 12 points for the Warriors. Kyler Bush scored 10 points for Fremont.
