Wayne State-bound Elijah Miller
MAPLETON - Galva-Holstein senior guard Elijah Miller scored his team's first nine points, helping the Pirates get away to a quick start over a tough Maple Valley/Anthon-Oto team here Tuesday night, posting a 22-7 lead at the first quarter break.

The Pirates were seeking to avenge a loss to the Rams in last week's MVC Tournament, and they did indeed, posting a 61-44 win in the rematch.

Miller, who will be playing basketball next year for Wayne State College, hit a career-high 31 points for Galva-Holstein, and also added 13 rebounds, seven steals, and five assists for a great all-around game.

Adrian Tracy scored nine points, and had four rebounds, two steals, two assists, and two blocked shots for the Pirates of Coach Bob Lee, who improved their regular-season MVC mark to 8-0. G-H has an 11-3 overall mark.

Big John Dentlinger grabbed 10 rebounds for Galva-Holstein, and also tossed in eight points. Joey Flanagan scored 14 points and snared eight rebounds for the Rams.

Coach Lee said the Pirates started out the game "with a lot of energy, and built a nice lead." MVAO fought back in the third quarter to narrow the G-H lead to just two at one point, before G-H righted the ship. Coach Lee said he was real pleased with how his players worked together in the fourth quarter to finish out the game.

"It was a real good win against a tough team," said the Pirate coach.
