OHS EAGLE BRADY EICHELBERGER (3) keeps his focus on the ball in action against GACC played on Friday, Jan. 19.

Due to some rough weather lately, the O'Neill Eagles have had to delay some games here and there. Last week they played one catch-up match against Neligh-Oakdale. Their first game against Wagner, played on Tuesday, Jan. 16 was played as scheduled

The opening act landed the Eagles in a good spot; just one point ahead the Red Raiders. Quarter two showed some Eagle dominance when put up eight more points to widen the gap between the teams.

Moving into half, the Eagle's lost their stride when they fell 16-5 in the third. And just like that, the Eagles had lost the advantage, falling short two points. The score was now 47-45 and the final quarter would decide it all. It was a close call, but the Eagles just fell short of resecuring the match.

Drew Morrow was the star of the game, shooting two of 12 three-pointers for 17 percent and five of 13 two-pointers for 38 percent. Morrow also had one rebound and seven steals; Ryder Pokorny had 10 points, two rebounds and three steals; Trevor Alder also 10 points and five rebounds; Colton Osborne eight points and six rebounds; Turner Heiss seven points, four rebounds and one steal; Brady Eichelberger three points, three rebounds and one steal; Porter Mathews two rebounds; Grant Dusatko one rebound; and Evan Kopecky one steal.

After a few quiet days, the Eagles were scheduled  to visit West Point to take on GACC. This was a pretty even match, but the Eagles managed the win 44-39.

Quarter one was a success for the Eagles, giving them an early three-point head-start. The following quarter was much of the same, putting the Eagles at a solid six-point lead at the time.

The half was rough for the Bluejays, putting them down a further nine points. The Bluejays took full advantage of their remaining time and put up 18 points while holding the Eagles to just eight.

Morrow also had two steals; Heiss had 10 points and four rebounds; Pokorny just behind with nine points and two rebounds; Osborne six points, eight rebounds and one steal; Eichelberger three points, seven rebounds and two steals; Alder three points, one rebound and two steals; and Dusatko and Mathews both one rebound each.
