GOESSEL — Canton-Galva’s basketball teams are off to 2-0 starts.

The Eagles opened play Monday in the Goessel Invitational by sweeping Burrton.

C-G’s girls were in control from start to finish for a 57-29 rout. It was a 26-17 game at the half and the Eagles provided the knockout punch with 19 points in the third quarter, 15 of those by Cassidy Enns.

Enns finished with 23. Four Eagles scored eight or seven points.

Canton-Galva will try to move to 3-0 tonight when it plays Central Christian in its second-round game.

C-G BOYS 60, BURRTON 42 — The Eagles won every single quarter to march to their second straight win.

Zach Snow had his second straight dominating game with 22 points and 12 rebounds as he’s been a double-double machine. Travis Unruh scored 10 points, but came up with a monster 16 rebounds. He also had six assists and three steals in a fine all-around game. Ethan Loyd chipped in with seven rebounds and five steals. Reed Wiens provided a spark with nine points and four steals off the bench.

“Reed came off the bench to give our offense a kick-start, hitting two 3s late in the first quarter,” C-G coach Shane Duncan said. “Zach Snow played the best game of his high school career. Considering his double-double, he may have been more effective at the defensive end. He altered many shots on the perimeter, which led Burrton to a 1-of-17 night from the 3-point line.

Unruh continues to be the glue as the senior guard is like a coach on the floor.

“Travis put up some great numbers although he struggled from the field tonight.” Duncan said. “He finds ways to help the team even if the ball isn't falling for him. Ethan Loyd had a really nice game for us. His offensive numbers don't jump off the page, but he did a lot of the dirty work that helped us tonight with rebounds and steals.”

Like the girls, the C-G boys hope to move to 3-0 tonight against Central Christian.
