Beavers take the fight to the plateau, edge Skyline 52-51

By Christopher Duclos

The Beaver boy’s win total reached double digits after Monday night’s battle in Sammamish. The boys traveled to the plateau to face the Skyline Spartans.

The last time the boys faced the Spartans was at home. Ballard walked away with the win after a defensive 49-41 decision. Skyline was not about to experience the same heartbreaking loss at the hands of Ballard.

Skyline pulled away slightly at the end of the second quarter with a halftime score of 27-25. Both teams seemingly did not want to miss a beat. The game came down to whoever scored last with Ballard escaping with a narrow win.

The Verduin-Berger duo strikes again with both scoring over 10 points. Scoring summary as follows: Verduin 16 points, 10 boards; Berger 10, Deger 7, MacGeorge 6, Brown 6, Owens 4 & 5 assists; George 2, Rauda 1.
