The O'Neill boys had their hands full last week facing off with three opponents over five days.
On Monday the Eagles traveled to Neligh to compete with the Warriors. The Eagles kept up a consistent pace in this game. Quarter one was back-and-forth, with the Eagles pushing ahead by one point. The next quarter was when the Warriors started to struggle. They fell by 14 points in this set alone.
This wasn't going to keep the Warriors down, though. They snatched quarter three by a few points, and with some good offense and defense, they could take the win. This wasn't the case however. The Eagles swooped in and took the final quarter, and the match.
The Eagle's MVP was Landon Classen with 19 points, shooting one of eight three-pointers for 13 percent and seven of 14 two-pointers for 50 percent, as well as 13 rebounds; Ryder Pokorny 13 points and four rebounds; Drew Morrow eight points and six rebounds; Kyler Dean six points and two rebounds; Tyler Diediker six points and one rebound; Colton Osborne three points and eight rebounds; Turner Heiss three points and five rebounds; and Grant Dusatko one rebound.

On the next day the Eagles hosted the Wagner Red Raiders and absolutely dominated. Right out the gate the Eagles made a huge statement with their 35-4 point quarter one.
The rest of the match was close, but quarter one had pretty much guaranteed the Eagle's win. Quarter four was won by the Red Raiders, but not by nearly enough to make up for the opening of the game.
