Scoopers vs Aberdeen Central
Gary Matthews - March 8, 2017
STURGIS, S.D. – Cole Bergan scored 24 points and Aberdeen Central pulled away from Sturgis in the second quarter to earn a trip to the State AA Boys Basketball Tournament with a 59-46 win.
Bergan was a concern for Sturgis Head Coach Colin McCampbell – and rightfully so – he dominated inside the paint, where he scored 10 points. He also chipped in 2 3-pointers and went 6 for 7 from the free throw line.
The Golden Eagles outscored Sturgis 22-13 in the second quarter to take a 32-20 halftime lead.
Sturgis started the final stanza down 15 – but would battle back to within 8 points. They would get no closer as Bergan went back to work and some costly turnovers by Sturgis would seal the game.
Sturgis finishes up the season with a 14-8 record.
