Eagle boys sink. Lakers to open -tournament By Pat Garry, Staff writer Entering the Minnesota Class AA Section 6 Boys basketball tournament as the #4 seed, the host Eden Valley-Watkins Eagles ousted the fifth-seeded rival Minnewaska Area Lakers Thurs- day night, 74-59. The game was a highly competitive battle for the first half, as the Eagles took a slim one-point lead into the break. Coach Adam Langer was pleased with the second-half effort. "We were up one at halftime. We came out in the second half knowing we had to do a better job rebounding on the defensive end, and limit- ing our turnovers. We did a much better job with those two aspects of the game in the 2nd half." But the Lakers weren't done, and bat- tled back to make it a game. "They cut it to six, but Brent Stenger and Bret Mattice combined to shoot 10 for 10 from the free-throw line in the last two minutes to seal the victory," said Coach Langer. The Eagles' scoring assault came from a six-man attack. Sophomore guard Bret Mattice, 24; senior guard Brent Stenger, 17; soph- omore forward ]ared Streit, 16; senior guard Alex Geislinger, 9; senior forward Kirby Knutson, 6; senior forward Mitchell Lease, 2. The Eagles advance and face the #1-seeded Litchfield Dragons, Sat- urday, March 9, at St. John's Uni- versity, in a 5:30 p.m. start. The floor is done, the bleachers are in. The new EV-W gym is progressing nicely. (Last week, the Varsity basketball team even got to practice some freeshots before their playoff game. The floor needs to cure now, but it is anticipated that by April 1 it sill be available for use. The next step will be building and outfitting the stage, which likely will not start until June or later. Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
