On Friday night, the High Plains Storm braved the incoming snow and traveled down to Davenport to take on Bruning-Davenport/Shickley.
The Storm opened up the game with a 3-pointer to get the early advantage, but the Eagles weren’t going to throw in the towel. Adjusting to the Storm’s defense, the Eagles started to find some creases and ended the quarter up 15-9. That was all the advantage the Eagles were going to need as they started to get the ball inside and took a 35-13 lead into the half. The second half showed much of the same as the Eagles were able to get into the bench early and coasted to a 63-17 victory.
“We felt like our biggest issue tonight would be ourselves and being focused on being a better team by the end of the game then we were going into the game," Eagle head coach Greg Schroeder said. "That is hard to do this time of year because kids look at records and can let that go to their heads. I was pleased with the focus the kids showed when it could have been easy to get sloppy.”
The 17-5 Eagles (No. 8 in wildcard points in Class D-1) were led by Caden Norder with four steals leading to a game-high 17 points.
“A lot of credit should go even to our guys off the bench as when their turn came up in the second half, there wasn’t any let down in focus,” Schroeder added.
The Eagles will hit the hardwood again in Bruning against the Meridian Mustangs Friday in their last regular season game of the year.
