COLLINS, HUFF LEAD CANTON/GALVA

By William

A second half surge by Central Christian proved to be the undoing of the Canton/Galva boys basketball team as they lost on Tuesday to Central Christian 58-49.

The Eagles lead by one at 15-14 at the end of the first before Central Christian was able to take a two-point, 26-24 advantage into the halftime break and then put 32 more points on the board in the final two quarters while holding the Eagles to just 25 to gain the victory.

It was an evenly played game with Central Christian holding the deciding edge at the free throw line where they hit 11 while the Eagles only made two.

Brayden Collins led the way for Canton/Galva with 14 points while Brandon Huff chipped in with 12. Garrett Maltbie topped the team in rebounds with seven with Collins and Huff each grabbing five.

The Eagles close out their participation in the Goessel Bluebird Classic with a game on Friday.
