Eldon falls to Steelville

Eldon came up just a little bit short in a home contest against Steelville on Wednesday night as they fell to the visitors by a final score of 56 to 51. 

"The second quarter killed us. We have to find a way to take out that one bad quarter every night and put a full game together," Eldon coach Brandon Kliethermes said. "When we do that, I feel like we can surprise some people."

Clayton Moore paced the Mustangs with a double-double performance recording 15 points and 11 rebounds. Logan Hall also knocked down 15 points while Devin Degraffenreid added 12 and Chase Fitzpatrick finished his night with seven points and 10 rebounds respectively.
