BRODHEAD - Palmyra-Eagle finished 0-for-9 from the free throw line, but that's not why Brodhead won. The Cardinals held Palmyra-Eagle to just 19 points in the entire game, including seven in the second half to route its Rock Valley South counterpart 49-19 Friday.

J.J. Panoske led the way for the Cardinals with 16 points, 10 of which came in the third quarter. Nick Jacobson and Carson Scheidegger each scored 10 points as well for Brodhead.

The Cardinals actually trailed 10-9 after the first quarter, but an 11-2 run in the second put them up 20-12 at the break. In the second half Brodhead outscored Palmyra-Eagle 29-7.

Brodhead travels to Wisconsin Dells on Monday for a non-conference game.

Monticello 55,

Black Hawk 41

MONTICELLO - In crunch time, Monticello knocked down some key free throws en route to the Six Rivers East Conference win.

The Ponies (3-2, 2-0 Six Rivers East) led 36-31 going into the fourth quarter. Monticello made 8 of 11 free throws in the fourth quarter and outscored the Warriors 18-10 in the frame to seal the win.

"We knew when we have the lead in the fourth quarter, they would put us on the line and we sealed it," Monticello coach Mark Olson said.

Monticello senior Tyler Ritschard scored a game-high 22 points to lead the Ponies. Fellow senior Corey McGowan and junior Lukas Kolasch each scored 11.

Black Hawk (3-4, 1-2) was led by senior Michael Wolff, who scored a team-high 13 points. Black Hawk sophomore Merik Meythaler added 11 and junior Hayden Schliem chipped in nine. Schliem dealt with some foul trouble in the first half and was forced to the bench.

"That took one of their scorers away for a little while in the second quarter," Olson said.
