BDS To Face Unbeaten Amherst, Once-Beaten High Plains This Week

On Friday, Bruning-Davenport/Shickley traveled to Shelby for a game with CRC foe Shelby/Rising City.  Both teams were playing their first game following the CRC Tournament and had postponed games due to the weather earlier in the week.
Things fell into place early for the Eagles as they quickly built a first quarter margin and finished up with a 20-7 lead.  
“We really didn’t do anything special,” Eagle head coach Fred Kluck said.  “We were coming off a loss and it’s always a little difficult to know how a team will respond to that.  We played pretty good defense and that led to some easy offensive opportunities and the lead just grew.”  
The second quarter saw more of the same with both Kendall Dickson and Ben Elznic coming off the bench to give the team a spark inside the lane on offense, rebounding the ball and playing aggressively on defense.  Noel Gines also did his part off the bench picking up where the starters left off on defense.  When the teams reached half time, the Eagles led 37-15.
“I really felt coming into this game we would be tested defensively,” Kluck said.  “We played solid defensively and made very few mistakes offensively and that usually means a pretty good outcome in the end."
BDS finished the game with only four turnovers.
In the second half, the 18-2 Eagles continued to pull away and entered the fourth quarter leading 53-19. The game ended 61-39 and all 15 BDS players saw action.
Leading the way in scoring were four Eagles with double figures.  Riley Tegtmeier finished with 14 along with 4 assists.  Cody Garland added 12, as did Ben Elznic.  Kale Kleinschmidt had 10 and a game high 5 assists.  Stuart Rohr added 5, Kendall Dickson 4 and Holden Stengel and John Christensen scored 2 each to wrap up the scoring.

This week, BDS (ranked No. 2 in wildcard points in Class D-1 behind potential district final opponent Lourdes Central Catholic) will play a make-up game on Monday with Meridian and then head into a tough weekend where they will see a one-loss High Plains team on Friday and an undefeated Amherst team at the Heartland Hoops Classic on Saturday.  Tip-off is slated for 9 a.m., this Saturday at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island.
