Eagle Boys Improve To 16-5


Last Tuesday night, the Bruning-Davenport/Shickley Eagles took on the Osceola Bulldogs.
Going into the game, the Eagles knew they wanted to work on establishing themselves from the start, and that they did opening the game with a 11-1 first quarter lead.
The second quarter led to more scores for the Bulldogs, but the Eagles went into half time 26-13.
The second half was nearly identical to the first as the Eagles finished off the game with another one point defensive effort to win the game 47-27.
Garrett Schardt led the charge in the paint scoring 10 points.
Anthony Beavers was the lead man on the rebounds collecting six first half rebounds to get the game going.
“This was a game where we hoped we could be in control and work a few things that we haven’t been able to get to yet," BDS head coach Greg Schroeder said.  "They provided some challenges by mixing in a few different looks, but I thought we overcame that and got a lot accomplished. It’s hard to have a good flow when you work on things in a game like that, but I thought the boys handled it well and gave a good effort defensively which gave us the ability to do that.”

Osceola 1–12–13–1 - 27
BDS 11–15–13 – 8 - 47
Scoring: Dickson 1, Stengel 7, Schardt 10, Christensen 6, Beavers 10, Norder 10, Reinsch 1, J. Swartzendruber 2
On Friday night, the BDS boys took to the road for the final time in the regular season to face the Shelby/Rising City Huskies in Shelby.
The team was looking to build on a strong defensive performance on Tuesday and did just that.
“Our talk was much improved from anything we had done all year which made us a half step quicker, defensively," Schroeder said.   "We needed that as the guys we faced tonight were very quick athletes."
The Eagles were clearly ready to go as they jumped out to a 32-10 lead at the half. The second half was a draw with both teams scoring 30 each to end the game in a 62-40 win.
“A lot of the points we gave up were to guys we wanted to shoot," Schrorder said.  "Give them credit, those guys stepped up and made those shots. The Eagles had great defensive efforts by the whole team. Garrett Schardt and John Christensen have really been the two guys to step up and take on the better perimeter guys we see, they set the tone tonight for us.”
The Eagles improved to 16-5 on the season and return to action next Friday against High Plains.
