Burros, Canes', OT


Fri, Jan 13th, 2012
Posted in Sports

Two top-tier SEC teams met up in Lanesboro for an early January face off. The host Burros entered 4-0 in league, 5-2 overall. Their adversary, Houston, entered 3-1 (lost to Spring Grove) 6-2 overall. 'Cane Troy Sires was the first half show. The 5'10" senior guard pumped in 16 points (4-8 from distance). He helped propel the visitors to a 37-31 halftime advantage. Their lead was seven 1/3 of the way thru the second half when the game took a backseat to an injury. After a lay-up attempt, Burro Erik Peterson collided head first with the wall beneath the basket. Paramedics and an ambulance were called to ensure his safety. Losing a teammate seemed to motivate the Burros. They subsequently ran off an 11-2 run (to take a 48-46 lead at the 9-minute mark). From there, it was back-and-forth. Luke Rogers' hoop-and-some-converted-harm with 19 ticks put Lanesboro in the drivers seat, 62-59. However, Josh Vix, Houston's second-half stud, hit a clutch step-back three with six seconds to go, tying the game. Braden Hanson got a shot in the waning seconds, but it did not fall. In overtime, it was all 'Canes, all from the charity stripe. They scored the first 8 points on 8-8 FT shooting. That sufficed. Houston prevailed 71-63. Vix, 22 (all in the 2nd half or OT), and Sires, 21, led the way. Kole Ruud was dynamite from behind the three-point line for the Burros. The sophomore nailed four 2nd half triples, six for the game, for team high 18 points (6-10 from distance). Hanson added 17. Both teams shot more 3's than 2's. Houston was 9-28 from distance, 11-27 from two. Lanesboro was 15-46 from three, 6-13 from two. The FT line was the big edge though. Houston went 22-32 (16-22 after halftime). Lanesboro went 8-11 (2-3 after the break). The teams are now tied for 2nd place in the SEC. Peterson, taken out on a backboard on Thursday, was sitting in a chair under his own volition at the girl's game Friday.

Finish Strong

All coaches want their teams to finish out halves and games strong. That's exactly what the Kingsland Knight boys (4-1, 4-3) did in a clash with Lewiston-Altura (4-2, 5-4). Of course, they sort of had to finish strong. They faced a couple of double-digit holes. In the first half, L-A used a 10-0 run just past the midway point to build an eleven-point lead (27-16). Much of that was because of guard Josh Ehlenfeldt (7 for 9, 16 points). Kingsland finished with an 11-1 run though, slicing the Cardinal halftime lead to 28-27. The second half followed a .....

Smith tops 1,000

What Mabel-Canton senior center Steve Smith does on the court isn't necessarily flashy. There are no three-pointers, pull-up jump shots, or dipsy-do drives to the lane. He isn't the new age big-man, or more likely to gravitate to the perimeter versu .....

For 16-plus minutes of the Lanesboro boys' dual with Hope Lutheran, the Burros were a bit tight. They were a little anxious. A teammate was on the cusp. Braden Hanson, the Burros multi-talented 6'2" senior guard, came into the contest with 986 caree .....

It's probably what the Chatfield Gophers volleyball team said before, and likely what they said after, playing the Caledonia Warriors in the Sub-Section 1AA finals at Mayo Civic Center. And to say there is a decent sports program located on state ro .....
