Basketball: Eagles soar to 50-point win in opener
Southern Door opened the high school boys basketball season Tuesday night with a bang.
The Eagles raced out to a 17-point lead in the first quarter, increased it to 38 at halftime and rolled past Green Bay West, 86-36, in a nonconference game at Southern Door.
?We took it to them, and that?s what we wanted to do,? said Eagles coach Ben Rikkola. ?We?ve been on the other side of games like this a couple of times last year, so it feels good to be on the opposite end.?
The Eagles made six three-pointers in the first half, including two by Mitchel Neubauer and one each by Mitchell Gerend, Brett Kinnard, Lance Klaubauf and Jordan Englebert.
?We came out of the gates hot,? said Rikkola. ?The shots were going in and we had a lot of different guys stretch the defense. The game was kind of in hand in the first half.?
The Eagles got points from 10 different players, led by Neubauer with 16, Austin Rohe 13, Klaubauf 11 and Trevor Hawkey 10.
?What I liked tonight is the way we played unselfishly,? said Rikkola. ?I really liked the way the kids shared the ball, and that?s going to make us a better team down the road.?
Rikkola said it?s important for his team to keep the win in perspective. The Wildcats won just two games last season, they?ve got a new coach this year and they were missing several players for disciplinary reasons.
?My mentality is never too high, never too low,? said Rikkola. ?Just stay even keel and try to build something consistent.?
Southern Door expects a more difficult challenge Thursday night, when it hosts Mishicot in another nonconference game.
