HAWARDEN - The Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn boys bounced back from their Friday night loss to Hinton with a 68-24 pasting of West Sioux here on Tuesday.

The Eagles were led by the one-two punch of Tyler Prunty and Dylan Spieler, who contributed 17 and 15 points, respectively, to the Eagles' Tuesday night effort. Spieler also swept the boards for 11 rebounds and had seven steals, four assists and two blocks, while Prunty added eight rebounds.

MMC coach Mark Fisher felt that his team played with a better sense of purpose Tuesday.

" I thought our transition game was much better tonight.," said the first-year coach. "We ran the floor well and shared the ball. The ball movement was great tonight, guys were making quick decisions and keeping the ball moving.

"Defensively, we were more aggressive. Still work to be done defensively, but the intensity and execution was better, and I thought we rebounded better as well. Overall, we needed a game like this to get back in rhythm."

The Eagles take on Gehlen Catholic Friday in LeMars.
