When Cherryvale and Neodesha last met, the Blue Streaks were able to keep it close and make the Chargers sweat for a win. Tonight Cherryvale got payback and left no doubt in our KGGF High School Game of the Week.
The Chargers topped the Blue Streaks 70-39, with Cherryvale improving to 8-4 on the season, and Neodesha falling to 2-11. Cherryvale is also now 3-0 against Neodesha this season.
The Chargers started the game on a 13-0 run, and silenced the home Neodesha crowd. The Blue Streaks would battle back, however, and got within 4 points late in the first half.
Cherryvale would pull away in the second half, in large part due to a gutsy effort from guard Stetson Schafer, who injured his ankle in the first half, but continued to play extremely well while in noticeable pain. Schafer had 19 points and 6 rebounds for the Chargers, while senior Brock Robertson also contributed 19 points for Cherryvale. Talon Roebuck had 11 for Neodesha, and Andrew Heck added 10 rebounds on the night.
Neodesha will take on Caney on Friday night, a game that can be heard on Greatest Hits 104.1 FM. Cherryvale will have a home game against Bluestem on Friday night as well.
