Placeholder Image
NEW GLARUS - The New Glarus boys basketball team had two shots in the final seconds to come back before dropping a nail-biter to Lakeside Lutheran 63-60 Tuesday.

Trailing by two points late in the fourth quarter, New Glarus junior Gavin Binger had a shot blocked with 8 seconds to go. Lakeside Lutheran made one free throw. New Glarus junior Austin Schlueter missed a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that could have forced overtime.

"I thought it was our best game of the year so far," New Glarus coach Travis Sysko said. "We just couldn't get over the hump."

Lakeside Lutheran outscored the Glarner Knights 19-9 in the second quarter to take a 12-point lead at the half. New Glarus (0-3) erased the deficit with a 9-0 run in the third quarter. The Knights had four players in double figures led by senior Colton Boley who scored a team-high 12 points. Binger and Sawyer Myers each scored 11 points. Junior Trey Taylor added 10 points.

"Trey and Sawyer came off the bench and gave us a big lift," Sysko said. "I thought that was huge."

Parkview 69,

Juda 63

JUDA - An up-and-down performance from the Juda boys basketball team caught up with the Panthers in the fourth quarter against Parkview Tuesday in Juda.

Juda fell to Parkview 69-63 in a game that saw a series of runs from both teams. Parkview led by five at the end of the first quarter before the Panthers stormed back to take a 33-29 lead into the half. Parkview cut that lead to one point to finish the third and seized that momentum to win the game.

"It was two totally different ball games," Juda coach James Pickett said. "We came out flat in the first quarter and didn't execute our gameplan. But in the second quarter we took advantage of their turnovers. The third quarter was a wash, and in the fourth quarter we just got away from our gameplan again like we did in the first."

Pickett said offensive rebounds and transition scoring for Parkview is what really cost the Panthers, who fell to 1-1 on the season.

Sophomores Matt Schmitt and Skylar Stuckey led the Panthers in scoring with 11 and 9 points, respectively. Schmitt also led the team with 15 rebounds.

Parkview (2-1) was led by Nolan Masterson's 17 points. Hunter Case chipped in with 13 points.

Pickett said that despite the loss, the Panthers have proven that they have a lot to build on going forward.

"I think our kids are buying into what we're saying," Pickett said. "They're starting to believe in themselves, the program, and that's the first step to being a successful team. The effort, enthusiasm and attitude has really picked up."

Juda hosts Platteville at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Potosi 60,

Argyle 39

POTOSI - Brent Curtis scored a game-high 17 points to lead Potosi to a 60-39 non-conference win over Argyle.

The Chieftains jumped out to a 14-8 lead over the Orioles and led by 10 points at the half. The Chieftains broke the game open outscoring the Orioles 19-7 in the third quarter.

Argyle junior Kyle Emberson scored a team-high 16 points. Junior teammate Riley Ostby added nine points and senior Colton Ploessl chipped in eight points.
