Class 4-ranked Helias' 'next level' flattens Hornets

Behind by four points midway through the second quarter and carrying the momentum of a three-point play, the prospects were hopeful for the Fulton Hornets in their quest to upend the state-ranked Helias Crusaders.

Fulton was held to a season-low point total as it was overwhelmed by the Crusaders 70-38 on Friday night at Roger D. Davis Gymnasium.
