SEDGWICK — In a rematch of the recent Canton-Galva Invitational finals, the Sedgwick boys repeated their earlier victory 46-39 over Canton-Galva despite a great effort by the Eagles.

C-G led 20-16 at the half, but Sedgwick turned the tide in the third quarter by outscoring the Eagles, 16-9.

Zach Snow’s 20 points led the Eagles, who were hampered by the fact standout guard Travis Unruh was in foul trouble much of the game. Snow also had nine rebounds to nearly complete a double-double.

“We played really well defensively tonight. Unfortunately, we just couldn't hit shots down the stretch,” C-G coach Shane Duncan said. “We handled their pressure through three quarters, but had four untimely turnovers in the final 2 minutes of the game. We got it down to 3 (42-39) with 18 seconds to go, but Sedgwick hit their final four free throws to pull away at the end.  Zach Snow played had a strong game tonight in the post. He came out aggressive in the paint, and on the glass tonight.”

• SEDGWICK GIRLS 54, CANTON-GALVA 49 — Cassidy Enns continued on her scoring rampage, but Sedgwick’s strong first half was too much to overcome.

The Cardinals led 28-20 at the half and it was an uphill climb the rest of the way.

Enns poured in 25 points to give her 67 in two games this week as she ripped the cords for 42 on Tuesday. Kelli Nightingale had a fine game as well with 18.
