Sacred Heart Cruises to Sweep at Council Grove

At no point Friday night did Sacred Heart trail as the Knights picked up a pair of relatively easy road wins against the Braves of Council Grove.

The Knight Girls won 47 to 28 while the Sacred Heart Boys topped the Braves 57 to 35.


Sacred Heart used a strong first half to get separation and Council Grove could never get back in the game as the Knights won by 19.  Sacred Heart had a fine defensive effort not allowing the Braves to score in double digits in any of the game’s four quarters.

Knight Senior Ella Gotti had a big night and led all scorers with 12 points, double her season average.  Ellie Woodall, a Junior, was the only other Knight in double digits with 11.  Freshman Avery Eshleman had one of her best outings contributing 8 points to the Knight cause.

For the Braves the leading scorer was Junior Liz Armstrong who netted 9 points, 5.5 points below her season average.
