Osage tops Southern Boone
Osage hosted Southern Boone Monday night and the Indians topped the Eagles 64-47.
The Indians seized an early 10-point lead after the first quarter and never faltered the rest of the way.
"Another very big conference game for us. We had played Southern Boone early in the year and got a really good result," Osage coach Scott Rowland said. "This Eagle team was much different and was playing much better, almost getting victories over California and Blair Oaks. Truthfully, this was one of our best games of the season. Our defense was exceptional and really bothered Southern Boone into turnovers in the first half. We executed well in the full court and in the half court as well."
Kerrigan Gamm led Osage with 21 points and seven rebounds, Carson Wood added 20 to go with six rebounds and five steals and both Payton Good and Liberty Gamm recorded eight points each.
"This was a great team win. Liberty was consistent throughout and Payton hit six-for-six from the (free throw) line which makes us strong in close games," Rowland noted. "Karli (Kempf) was a force on the boards. All the players played well and we need that as the season winds down."
Osage (17-2, 4-0 Tri-County Conference) visits Helias on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
