Ethan Yonke lead all scorers for Almond-Bancroft with his 21 points.
“We had some very outstanding play from a number of our players. (Jacob Joslin) had 14 points and 10 rebounds and he played Yonke toe-to-toe on most of our defenses,” said Port Edwards coach Dusty Rhodes.
“Sam Sweeney came in for the injured Nick Collar (sprained ankle), and did outstanding, not just scoring but also defensively. Chris Montag of course was scoring nicely all the way through with his 17. Our defense really stymied them. It was our team defense that really won this for us. I cant stress how much playing four sophomores and winning against a team like (Almond) means to our program, just building that momentum for the future.”
