Scribner-The Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Boys and Girls Basketball Teams swept a doubleheader from Madison in Scribner Tuesday night as the Raiders won the Girls game 42-29 and the boys contest 76-46.
In the girls game, the Dragons jumped out to a 9-2 lead at the end of one before the Raiders outscored them 13-3 in a second quarter that included a 9-0 run to lead 15-12 at halftime.
LVSS continued their dominant ways in the 3rd quarter, outscoring Madison 13-2 to lead 28-14 at the end of three.
The Dragons won the 4th quarter 15-14.
Kaylee Boyle had a game-high 17 points for the Raiders, who improved to 4-8 on the season. Morgan Morgan chipped in 11.
LVSS Head Coach Nick Hegge says his team really picked things up in the 2nd quarter after a slow start. “Yes we did an excellent job attacking the basket in the 2nd quarter. Early on they got off to a hot start, knocked down some 3-pointers. The girls did an excellent job of just staying calm and playing good defense. And eventually we started to get some rebounds. Started getting to the free throw line. And the last 3 quarters our offense looked really good so I’m proud of the way that they hung in there through a little bit of a shaky start.”
The Raiders were 17-26 at the free throw line.
The Dragons’ first 12 points of the game came on 3-pointers.
Brittney Jurgens and Megan Eisenmann had 8 points apiece to lead Madison, who falls to 3-10 on the season.
In the boys game, the Raiders started the game on a 9-0 run and led 23-10 at the end of one. LVSS outscored the Dragons 18-7 in the 2nd quarter to take a 41-17 lead into the locker room.
The Raiders won the 3rd quarter 19-14 to go up 60-31 at the end of three.
LVSS won the 4th quarter 16-15.
Ben Moxness had a game-high 25 points to lead the Raiders, who upped their record to 10-2 on the year. Alex VonSeggern added 15 while Jacob Polk scored 14.
Jason Gonzalez led Madison, who dropped to 3-8 on the year, with 18 points, all on 3’s. Keaton Hendren added 9 points, all on 3-pointers as well.
LVSS Head Coach Sean Forbes says he was pleased with his team’s defense. “I thought tonight the team defense was really key. Madison can really shoot it. So when we did get to the shooters I mean they knocked down 3’s, but we had a really good effort. I’m proud of our guys.”
Both the Raider Boys and Girls host Wisner-Pilger on Saturday.
“They got a talented center. As good as any post player that we’ll probably face this year. So they’re going to be a tough challenge for us, but we feel good about some things that we’re doing, and we’re just going to stick with it, keep working hard. And eventually I think our kids are going to get rewarded here,” Hegge said.
Forbes says the Gator boys will also be a formidable foe. “Yeah it will really be a tough game. They’re good, they’re very well coached. We just got to do what we do. Play great defense, and hopefully knock down some shots. I mean it will be a good game, we’re looking forward to playing it, but we know it’s going to be a tough one. And conference seeding after next weekend comes out so it’s really important for us to come out and play well against Wisner, but it won’t be easy, they’re a good team.”
Both Madison teams are in action Friday night when they travel to Tekamah to take on Tekamah-Herman.
