CANTON — Sedgwick and Ell-Saline were opening-night winners in the Canton-Galva Invitational Basketball Tournament on Monday.

Sedgwick overcame a slow start to dispatch with St. John’s Military, 56-40. In a low-scoring second game, Ell-Saline led the Derby Invasion only 14-11 at the half and still ended up with just a 37-29 victory.

The host Eagles, looking for their first win since the Christmas break when they were 5-1, are in action today against the Derby Invasion at 7:30 p.m. The opening game matches the Wichita Warriors against St. John’s Military at 6.

The Eagles also play at 7:30 Thursday against Ell-Saline as there are two pools of three.
