Wildcat boys win seventh straight
A pair of non-conference road games proved to be little challenge for the Blair-Taylor boys, as they rolled to their sixth and seventh consecutive victories.
The week began with a road rout of Brookwood last Monday, and wrapped up with a 59-38 win over Nekoosa. No further information from the Nekoosa game was provided to the Times by press time.
B-T moved to 17-2 with the wins, and already has the Dairyland Conference Small Division wrapped up with an 11-0 record.
Their two scheduled contests this week included a road Dairyland game against Independence on Tuesday, before they return for their home finale on Friday against Alma/Pepin. The regular season concludes a week from Thursday at Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran.
B-T 94 Brookwood 51
A non-conference road matchup in Brookwood went the Wildcats’ way in convincing fashion last Monday despite an injury to their leading scorer in the first half. Kyle Steien left the game with six minutes remaining in the first half due to an ankle injury, and would be unable to return.
“I feel so bad for Kyle as at the time he had 19 points on the night and the Falcons had no answer for him,” said B-T head coach Randy Storlie. “We hope to have Kyle back in a week. I was very proud of the rest of our team as they picked up the slack for him. That is a sign of a solid squad.”
Another injury in the second half would force the Wildcats to rally again around their bench as Cain Fremstad succumbed to an undisclosed ailment.
“Again, our bench came up big as we had Cain out as well. We hope to have him back soon,” Storlie said. “I really like our team, we step up and count on each guy and tonight they all did a great job.”
Leading the Wildcats in scoring were Matt Waldera’s 22 points, followed by Alec Reismann and Steien each with 19, Issac Nerby’s 15, Logan and Kaleb Smith each with six, Nick Shepherd adding five and Fremstad with two points.
