The num- ber-one seeded Litchfield Dragons put an end to the Eagles' season, with a smothering 52-21 victory. The Dragons came out on fire, and built a 14-point advantage at the half. The Eagles never really got started and were colder than a Minnesota winter night. The 21 total points scored by EV-W would have been big in Vegas, but it was nothing less than dismal Saturday night. Box score: senior guard Brent Stenger, 4; sophomore forward Jared Streit, 5; senior guard Alex Geislinger, 5; senior forward Kirby Knutson, 4; senior forward Mitchell Lease, 3.
