CANTON — It’s been a long time since Canton-Galva’s basketball teams have gotten off to such great starts.
The Eagle girls are now 5-1 after doubling Burrton 62-31 on Friday night.
It was a three-pronged attack for C-G, as Cassidy Enns poured in 12 field goals for 24 points, Kelli Nightingale made nine field goals for 18 points and Brittany Nordstrom had a career high with 17.
The Eagles scored at least 16 points in each of the first three quarters.
• CANTON-GALVA BOYS 74, BURRTON 61 — The Eagles were "en fuego" in the middle two quarters, racing to 48 points.
C-G, after being down 17-12 after the first quarter, erupted for 25 points in the second quarter and never relented with 23 in the third as it is now 5-1.
Travis Unruh and Reed Wiens poured in 22 and 21 points, respectively, and Zach Snow had another double-double with 17 points and 10 boards.
Unruh had a tremendous floor game with seven assists and seven steals.
"We started off slow, which unfortunately has been a problem for us," C-G coach Shane Duncan said. "Reed Wiens and Ethan Dailey came off the bench and gave us instant offense. They combined for 21 points in the first half. Reed had a fantastic outing for us. He's improving every game. We really needed him to step up tonight and he did."
Unruh, though, continues to be the glue.
*Travis stuffed the stat sheet this evening," Duncan said. "He really controlled the tempo for us and made great decisions in transition. He's a heck of a point guard for us."
And Snow controlled the inside.
*Zach had another double-double," Duncan said. "He struggled in the first half and really dominated the post in the second half (12 points, seven rebounds)."
