"I thought we played pretty well," said Sikeston ninth grade coach Chris Sarakas. "This was a good game for us because we got everybody in for some playing time and those guys did a good job. We had a lot of people score and that's always a good thing."

Nine different players reached the scoring column. Dominic Fondon led the way with seven points followed by Kelvin Davis, Jake Pratcher, Richard Andrews and Courvirseya Strickland's six points each.

Zach Essner and Eric Turlsy led Kelly with seven points apiece.
