The SoBoCo Eagles got back to winning on Wednesday evening with a 68-59 victory over California at home.
While the score was closer than most anticipated – the Pintos are young and near the bottom of the Tri-County Conference – the Eagles were playing their four game since Friday and coming off a bruising loss at Blair Oaks.
That schedule has earned the Eagles a break until Tuesday’s opening games of the Southern Boone Classic.
The Eagles jumped to a quick 21-16 lead in the first quarter, but the Pintos shot well in the second fram and out-pointed the Eagles 24-17 and led SoBoCo at halftime 40-38.
The Eagles came back in the third period on an 18-10 run to pull ahead and won 68-59.
Maguire Schee led SoBoCo with 17 points, Zane Safely had 13 points for the Eagles and Garrett Goodnight and Sam Stichnote both had 12 points. Stichnote recorded six assists and 7 rebounds for SoBoCo.
• Maguire Scheer became only the 13th Eagle to reach the 1,000 point plateau in school history on Wednesday evening.
