Boys

Scott City 58, Goodland 43

The Scott City boys basketball earned a measure of revenge on Tuesday night in their home season finale when the Beavers defeated Goodland, 58-43, to finish off a 17-3 regular season and earn a No. 1 seed at next week's Class 4A-I Sub-State in Goodland.

The Cowboys had handed the Beavers one of their losses during the regular season, but on Tuesday night the Beavers overcame a sluggish start by outscoring Goodland in each of the final three periods to slowly pull away to the double-digit victory.

After trailing 9-5 at the end of the first quarter, the Beavers scored 16 points, but still trailed 24-21. A 23-7 run in the third quarter was the big factor in the outcome, providing the Beavers with a 44-31 lead going into the final eight minutes. They had a 14-12 scoring edge in the fourth.

Brett Meyer led the scoring for Scott City with 19 points while Trey O'Neil followed with 17, and Brayden Strine chipped in with 14. The Beavers were 12 of 15 at the free throw line.

For Goodland (8-12), Taylen Smith and Gage Ihrig led the way with 13 and 11 points, respectively.
