Cherryvale boys, girls streak past Neodesha

NEODESHA — The Cherryvale Chargers outpaced their hosts, the Neodesha Blue Streaks, 75-34, Friday night.

Cherryvale jumped to an early lead after the first quarter but overpowered the Blue Streaks in the next two quarters to put the game out of reach early in the second half. Cherryvale led 36-19 at half and 67-23 after three quarters.

Zaine Lantz led the Charger offense with 21 points, hitting three 3-pointers in the process. Gavin Hooper added 16 points.

“Our defense really picked up in the third quarter tonight and got things going in transition for us,” Cherryvale coach Aaron Rehmert said. “We played pretty sluggish out the gates but I thought we finished well. Everybody stepped up and played their role.”

Cherryvale, now 5-2 overall and 1-0 in district play, is off on Tuesday and will host Humboldt on Friday.

 

IN THE GIRLS GAME, the Chargers easily handled the Blue Streaks in a 55-39 win.

Cherryvale led 11-4 after the opening quarter and then poured in 20 points in the second for a 31-15 halftime lead. 

Cherryvale coach Kelsey Overacker said it was a good team win.

“Tonight was a very good night for us overall,” she said. “I would have liked to see us hold them to less points, but we got after it and had a lot of kids get some valuable minutes. I was glad to see a couple of our girls work out of a little slump and get going. We get a week’s rest and some time to fine tune some things.”

Cherryvale’s Mariah Monroy led her team in scoring with 13 points, but Camdyn Forman and Kelsi Lantz each had 12.

I’m real pleased with our effort and energy. When we bring those to aspects to the game the sky is the limit for us.”
