CANTON — Canton-Galva’s boys surpassed last year’s record after defeating future Wheat State League rival Little River on Tuesday, 56-37.

The Eagles, who are leaving the Heart of America League after this season, dominated from start to finish to even their record at 10-10. They won nine games last year.

Zach Snow powered his way to 19 points and Travis Unruh added 11. They also had six and five rebounds, respectively. Unruh had a terrific floor game with seven assists.

It was just the third double-digit victory season for the Eagles in the last 16 years.

“I felt we played our most complete game of the season,” C-G coach Shane Duncan said. “The boys did a really nice job on the glass and passed the ball extremely well. Zach was efficient from the field scoring 19 points on 11 shot attempts and I felt Travis had his best floor game of the season going 5 of 6 from the field and dishing out seven assists.  It was a great night for my seven seniors. They have great attitudes, their coachable and are high-character kids.  They deserved a Senior Night like tonight.”

Clay Zeller scored 14 to lead Little River and Damien Martinez added 10. 

The Canton-Galva girls also had a successful night with a 51-34 victory. 

It was a huge night for the Eagles’ Kelli Nightingale, who poured in 22 points. Cassidy Enns added 15. 

Madison Loder scored nine for Little River.
