Gary Matthews - January 4, 2017
LEAD, S.D. – Three players scored in double figures and Sturgis overcame a first half deficit to blow past Lead-Deadwood Tuesday night 75-48.
The Golddiggers scorched the net in the first half – at one point leading by 9 over the cold-shooting Scoopers.
But the Scoopers exploded in scoring in the third quarter, and Lead-Deadwood cooled as Dawson Geuke hit four 3-pointers and Connor Crane and Jace Fischer each added one in the scoring spurt.
Sturgis led 52-39 at the end of 3, and never looked back.
Geuke finished with 17 points to pace the Scoopers. Ryan Garland added 15.
Lead-Deadwood was led by Chris Lipp’s 12 points.
Meanwhile, the Scooper girls had little trouble with the Golddiggers, as they cruised to a 51-13 victory.
Loralee Stock led the Scoopers with 15 points and Brook Janz added 12.
