REMINGTON — Canton-Galva’s boys got off to a good start on Tuesday against Remington, but the Broncos erupted for 37 points over the middle two quarters to key a 64-48 victory.

C-G was up 12-7 after a period and then scored the first five points of the second quarter, but Remington scored 20 points in the quarter and 17 in the third. For good measure, the Broncos scored 20 in the fourth.

Zach Snow just missed a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds to lead C-G. Travis Unruh tallied 11 points, dealt out eight assists and came up with six rebounds.

“We were up 17-7 early in the second quarter, then the wheels fell off,” C-G coach Shane Duncan said. “We became impatient on the offensive end and did a poor job of boxing out on the defensive end. They ended the second quarter on a 20-5 run.”

Duncan liked the grit of his team, though, as after getting down 16 in the second half, it made a run to pull within six.

“We couldn't capitalize from the line down the stretch and the game got away from us,” he said.

The Remington girls had started things with a thrilling 43-40 victory over the Eagles, who overcame a 26-15 halftime deficit to make a game of it in the second half, including a 10-3 run in the third quarter.

Cassidy Enns’ 14 points led C-G, while Kelli Nightingale chipped in with 11.
