The Lions put three players in double figures and moved their record to 4-0 on the season with a 71-47 win over the Comets. Tuesday night at Okoboji the Lions had one major scoring threat with Nic Lutmer dropping 30 points. Friday night against the Comets, Central Lyon's Kalen Eckenrod scored 16, Lutmer had 15, Riley Van Wyhe 10, CJ Roths nine and Pete Menage eight. "1 really feel that we were able to show how versatile we can be as a team tonight," said Central Lyon head coach Ben Ger- leman. "Tuesday night we had Nic go off which can happen, but tonight we had multiple players step up and put up some good numbers for us" Boyden-Hull coach Bill Francis felt the game wasn't really that close. "It just seemed like they really outplayed us through the whole game," he said. "We just never really challenged them in the game at all" Central Lyon led 17-9 after one and 41- 28 at the break, getting a big momentum heading into the locker room. Boyden-Hull scored off an inbound play with less than 10 seconds before the half to cut the Lions' lead down to 10. CJ Roths took the inbounds pass and walked right up to the 3-point line and drilled one from deep, putting his team up 13. Gerleman said Boyden-Hull will gives teams in the Siouxland Conference a lot of issues going forward. "They're a solid team and they were out one of their better players and you could tell that" he said. "Offensively they over 57 percent from the floor their first two games of the season, so for us to hold them to only 47 points that's a pretty good accomplishment: The Lions started the third quarter on a 7-0 run but ran into some foul trouble later on that opened the door for the Comets. Boyden-Hull outscored the Lions 13-12 in the third quarter, but still trailed 53-41. "We didn't want to be satisfied only up 13 at halftime," Gerleman said. "We always try to come out at the start of each quar- ter and try to set the tone and win the first four minutes and keep building from that:' An 18-6 fourth quarter out of the Lions closed the game at 71-47. Justin Schmidt led Boyden-Hull with 24 points and nine rebounds. Jamison Te Slaa and Chandler Brunsting added six each. Eckenrod led Central Lyon in scoring, but also tossed in six rebounds, three steals and two assists. Roths had six re- bounds and three assists. Mnage dished out five assists. "1 hope our kids realize that it's one game, it's the fourth game of the year and it won't define how our season will go in any way," Gerleman said. "We need to stay grounded and continue to improve" Central Lyon improves to 4-0 on the sea- son. Boyden-Hull falls to 1-2 overall and in the conference.

The Cometsscored at least 20 points in three of the four quarters, doing it all with- out a lot of contribution from their leading scorer Dalton Moser who is dealing with an ankle injury. "We got into a pretty good rhythm early and I think our key was we were tak- ing good shots and when those start to fall in, good things are going to happen," said Boyden-Hull head coach Bill Francis.'l thought we played really well offensively by taking good shots and knocking some of them down to get our confidence go- Boyden-Hull's Chandler Brunsting dishes out a pass while driving the laneTuesday night at home against West Lyon.

"We needed other people to step up and Jamison (Te Slaa) and Kyle (Bakker) bol;h stepped up and had a big game offensive- ly. That's the thing with this team. We can have different leading scorers every night and that's going to be hard to defend:' Boyden-Hull led 17-10 after the first quarter before outscoring the Wildcats 23- 14 in the second quarter to go up 40-24. Boyden-Hull's Justin Schmidt had 14 at the half. Bakker had 10. "Boyden-Hull is a very good team and I wouldn't be surprised to see them com- pete for a Class 1A state championship" said West Lyon head coach Dan De Jong. "They shot the ball really well and got out in transition on us and they just did a great job getting spacing and getting some good open looks:' De Jong said his team's offense is com- ing along nicely, but now it's the defense's turn to catch up. "They have a great offense, but we have a lot of things to work on defensively;' he said. "We talk about getting better every day and we'll work a lot on defense and make sure we're guarding the right guys and rotating, doing all the little things that makes a good defensive team. We're just not there right now:' Boyden-Hull outscored West Lyon 43-21 in the second half, including holding the Wildcats to just nine fourth-quarter points. "Our goal coming is to not look at the scoreboard as much as trying to make them take difficult shots; not giving them anything easy" Francis said. "The second goal is to not give them more than one shot and rebound well which can lead to our fast break. We did a great job of both of those things:' De Jong said the ball just hasn't bounced their way yet. "We missed a lot of easy bunnies this game but if we can't guard or stop anyone, we're not going to win any games giving up 83 points"he said. Issac Heyer led West Lyon with 11 points and three assists. Jaden Snyder came off the bench and had 10 points. Dylan Wha- len had 10 points and three assits with a steal. Beau Kellenberger crashed the glass for six rebounds. Chase Grotewold had two steals. Jake Newborg had four points and two rebounds in his first action after asking to join the team last week. Kyle Bakker had 25, Justin Schmidt 17 and Jamison Te Slaa had 17 points to lead Boyden-Hull on offense. Schmidt added seven rebounds and two assists to his line. Chandler Brunsting had five assists.

Zack Konz took home first place at 145 pounds for the Nighthawks. Devin Van Beek at 106 pounds and Austin Rozeboom at 120 pounds took second for the day. "We were real pleased with the day and I really thought the guys did a good job of getting out there and wrestling aggressively;' said Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley head coach Stan De Zeeuw. "We got to see some different kids which is really the big reason I like this tournament. We won't see half of these teams again:' Konz picked up back-to-back pins in his first two match- es, using a 15-4 decision in the semifinals over Michael Brewer of Ponca, Neb. In the finals; Konz won a 3-1 deci- sion over Tommy Toben of host Akron-Westeld. "He had a good day and easily had the biggest bracket by far," De Zeeuw said. "All 11 schools had one kid in that bracket and he had to wrestle an extra match with all the kids in it. His finals match was close, butit was one that he controlled pretty much the whole way:' Van Beek pinned his first two opponents before falling in a sudden victory to Tyson Stoebner of Lennox, S.D. in the finals. Rozeboom pinned his way to the quarterfinals and won an 1 I-6 decision in the semifinals before falling 5-I to Zach Ulven of Westwood in the finals. "Devin had a good kid from Lennox that he got to see in the finals and it was just a tight match and one of those one-one matches and they both kind of wear each other out on the feet" De Zeeuw said. "There were maybe 5-I O seconds left in the overtime session where he got taken down right at the edge of the mat. It's just one of those things where he was a little out of position. "Austin's bracket may have been the toughest. I think there were five guys that were returning state qualifiers but he took care of business" DeZeeuw said. Eagles wrestle lead away from Tigers Eagles from Page 13 Trinity 2-5-4-2 13 HULL--The rim at Hinton seemed pretty small Tuesday for the Trinity Christian girls' basketball team in its War Eagle Conference contest with the Blackhawks. The Tigers made just four field goals all game in a 56-13 loss to the Blackhawks. Deanna Hoksbergen had five points with Nicole Gritters adding four and Maria Van Den Top two. Kirsti Kooiker and Shanie Kooiker each hit one free throw to total the 13 points. "In the first quarter we had a lot of scoring opportunities but we just didn't score" said Trinity Christian coach Kassandra Heynen. "We shot 9.8 percent for the game and I don't even know what to say about that, we just didn't score. Luckily, they strug- gled to score in the first quarter too so it was only an eight-point game." Hinton led just 10-2 after the first quarter. Heynen said the second quarter was as simple as the Black- hawks' offense awakening. "We felt that we just needed to pick things up a little bit and we didn't and they did," she said. "We talked about playing with more energy and if we are struggling offensively, we just have to work that much harder on de- fense so the game doesn't get away from us." Heynen felt as soon as the shots weren't falling, the overall team en- ergy took a hit. "Nicole is the leader of our team and everyone kind of looks up to her and she was just having an off night," she said. "Nothing went in for her and I felt that impacted everyone else. We let them control the rest of the game:' Hinton outscored the Tigers 30-6 in the second half to make the 56-13 final. Hoksbergen had eight rebounds and two blocks. Sarah De Roon had four rebounds with two assists. Pam Regnerus, Kirsti Kooiker, Gritters and Van Den Top had three rebounds each.
