EV-W basketball boys start new year

Lose to KAHS 
Following an overtime victory against Holdingford at the
St. John’s Prep Holiday Tournament, the EV-W Eagles fell short last Thursday night, Jan. 3, at home, to the Kimball Area Cubs, 58-46. 

The contest couldn’t have been any tighter, as the clock at the half-time buzzer revealed a 19-19 tie. But to EV-W’s chagrin, the Cubs would trump the Eagles second-half tally of 27 with 39 of their own. Senior guard Brent Stenger led the Eagles with 14. Sophomore forward Jared Streit managed 12; Kirby Knutson, senior forward, finished with 8; and sophomore guard Bret Mattice had 7. 

The Eagles travel to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Tuesday, Jan. 8, and host Maple Lake Friday, Jan. 11.
