Defense leads Sioux Valley to 49-34 win

Posted: Wednesday, Jan 22nd, 2014

Sioux Valley senior Jake Larson goes up for a bucket past Chester Area's Jesse Kreutzfeldt during the first half of the Cossacks' 49-34 win over the Flyers on Tuesday evening in Volga.

VOLGA – Third-ranked Sioux Valley was a little flat on offense but made up for it on defense in a 49-34 Big East Conference boys’ basketball victory over Chester Area on Tuesday evening.

“I thought defensively, we were there,” said Sioux Valley head coach Bill Vincent, whose team improved to 11-0 (5-0 BEC) on the season. “We forced them into quite a few turnovers.

“Offensively, it became a little bit of a grinder. We maybe didn’t move the ball as well as we had been. We maybe thought that could happen at the end here of a stretch of a lot of games.

“We’re looking forward to three days off; three days of practice to prepare for our next opponent. So we need some practice time, and that showed up a little bit tonight.”
