Valley wraps up title with win
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Spring Valley claimed the Dunn-St. Croix title Thursday with a 51-33 win at Boyceville.

The Cardinals had three players in double figures led by Tyler Bosshart's 15 points, Mitch Webster's 14 points and 11 points put in by Rick Ingli.


But, just as important for SV's championship season was their defense as they held Boyceville, 1-19 overall, to just one player in double figures, Travis Score with 10 points.

Elmwood will finish a game behind SV after floor pounding Colfax Thursday by 30 points while Plum City was dropped by Glenwood City to finish the regular season below .500.

Best on display

Elmwood displayed some of it's best ball of the season against the Vikings at home Thursday in a 78-48 victory. It was the final regular season home game for Raider seniors Isaac Hartung, Michael Brunner and Cody Maves.

Maves and Brunner were both in double figures with 13 points of each. Ryan Bechel scored 15 points and EHS' Steve Pax led all scorers with 26 points.

A 20-11 first quarter and a 23-6 margin in the fourth helped to inflate Elmwood's winning margin.

Elmwood outrebounded the Vikings 42-24 with Brunner, Brett Bock and Ryan Bechel each grabbing eight rebounds. Pax finished with five assists and Maves had four steals.

Colfax, 4-16 overall, was led in scoring by M.J. Osterberg' 15 points.

Worst of the worst

Some of the worst losses a team can have are the one's they have big leads in.

Plum City took this kind of loss Thursday at home to the Hilltoppers. It was the final regular season home game for Blue Devil seniors Chris Biederman, Kyle Flynn, Adam Milliren and Kevin Bechel.

PC came out determined to beat GC with a 14-3 lead in the first quarter. But the 'Toppers, 13-7 overall, climbed back into the ballgame in the second quarter to trail by just a 23-19 margin at halftime. They outscored PC 32-18 in the second half.

"We played a good first quarter and after that they just stepped it up," Blue Devil head coach, Wayne Radle said.

Glenwood outscored Plum City at the free-throw line 17-5 and held them to just 35 percent shooting. Patrick Anderson did much to rally the Hilltoppers with a 20 point performance while teammate Nick Schouten scored 11 points.

No one for Plum City was in double figures. Biederman led the way with nine points while Flynn scored eight points.
