MASTRE, COLLINS LEADS EAGLES

CRAIG, PETERSON LEAD LADY EAGLES

By William

CANTON – First half offensive struggles for the Canton/Galva boys basketball team and outside shooting for the Canton/Galva girls team cost both teams wins on Tuesday as they both lost to visiting Lyons.

In the Eagle boys game, Lyons took advantage of the Eagles offensive struggles and ran out to a 37-7 lead by the time the two teams hit the halftime break. After a 22-point third quarter by Lyons they cruised to the final 39-point, 67-28 win.

The Eagle boys shot just 16% from the field and were out rebounded 48-29 in the game which helped Lyons.

Cason Mastre and Brayden Collins led Canton/Galva in scoring with nine and eight points respectively while Collins topped the team in the paint with seven rebounds.

For the Lady Eagles, they played Lyons a bit closer, only losing by 22 as Lyons scored a 57-35 win.

Mimi Craig was the lone Lady Eagle to reach double digits in the scorebook with 12 points while Emily Peterson and Alexa Bell came close with nine and eight points respectively.

Peterson had an overall strong game as she just missed a double-double with her 11 rebounds while also leading the Lady Eagles in steals with four. Breckon Pearson came off the bench and had a solid game as she hit for five points, grabbed four rebounds, made three steals and dished out one assist.

The Eagle boys are now 2-3 for the season while the Lady Eagles are still looking for their first win at 0-5. Both teams will travel to Solomon on Monday to close out their pre-Christmas schedule.
