With two of their top players out with injuries, the Colfax Vikings' offense took a beating on Tuesday, Jan. 30 when the Spring Valley boys basketball team held them to just six second-half points in their 38-21 road loss.

SV forced five Colfax turnovers in the first four minutes of the game, which set the scene for how the rest of the Dunn-St. Croix Conference matchup would play out.

The Cardinals led by five at half at 20-15, but only allowed two Colfax field goals in the second half.

SV's Aaron Borgerding and Dylan Bosshart along with Colfax's Ben Thompson all finished with nine points.

The Cardinals are now 8-7 overall, 5-3 in conference play, and above .500 for the first time since Dec. 5 when they were 2-1. The Vikings dropped to 9-6 overall after Tuesday's game, and are now just one game ahead of SV in Dunn-St. Croix rankings with a 6-2 conference record.

The Cardinals have won their last four games, and will look to lengthen their winning streak on Friday, Feb. 2 at Mondovi.

Scoring for the Cardinals: Aaron Borgerding, Dylan Bosshart 9; Tyson Kado 8; Craigen Anderson 7; Zack Williams 3; Lance McMurrin 2.
