Batesville CYO Basketball Results

first_imgSt. Louis-1  67     St. Maurice  28St. Louis-1 finished the regular season with a win over St. Maurice 67-28. St. Louis-1 got off to a slow start in the 1st quarter as they led 11-8 after one period. We got good shots but we couldn’t get the ball to fall. The 2nd quarter St. Louis-1 would shoot the ball much better as they would lead 32-15 at half. We got much better looks at the basket and the ball started to fall. In the 2nd half, St. Louis-1 would continue to make their shots as they would pull away for an easy win. Our defense really stepped up in the 2nd half which would lead to some easy baskets. This was a good effort by us as we head into the Deanery tournament.Kyle Siefert                 16Sam Giesting              12Alex Westerfeld          10Lane Oesterling          8Cooper Williams         5Mitchell Ertel              5Nathan Eckstein          4Sam Bedel                   4Jayden Beal                 3Coach Roger DietzSt. Louis-2  92     St. Teresa’s  35St. Louis-2 would end the regular season on a good notes as they would defeat St. Teresa’s 92-35. The first quarter was closely contested as St. Louis-2 would led 23-15. We didn’t do a good job defensively in the first quarter, so once we played better defense we were able to take control of the game. St. Louis-2 would continue is good play on both ends of the court and would come away with an easy win. We really played well and hopefully we can continue the good play heading into the deanery tournament next week.Charlie Prickel            20Evan Vogelsang           18Adam Cox                    15Gus Cooper                  11George Ritter               8Joey Gutzwiller            5Karson Macke              4Jacob Wuestefeld        3Tyler Kuntz                  2Braydon Worthington  2Christian Anderson     2Coach Fuzz Springmeyerlast_img read more
