GOESSEL — Knowing Shane Cordell, he probably thought that his Little River girls’ 40-27 victory over Goessel Thursday night was just another win.

But it wasn’t. It was much more than that.

The legendary Cordell reached the 600-victory mark in what is his 34th year.

And it came in typical Cordell style, with tough defense leading the way.

Skylar Johnston made sure Cordell reached his mark by pouring in 20 points.

Little River school officials have indicated that Cordell will be recognized before Tuesday’s game for his milestone.

• Little River boys 62, Goessel 42 — The Redskins continued their outstanding season, rolling to a 13-point halftime lead and then salting it away with a 17-5 burst in the third quarter.

Tevin Renken had yet another double-double for the Redskins with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Grant Harvey scored 15 and Chord Zeller added a dozen-double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
