Road Woes for Sigourney Boys

12-16-2013 Sigourney 63, BGM 41

Playing two of the conference’s top teams on the road and losing a starter to an ankle injury is not an ideal recipe for a great amount of success.
 
The Sigourney boys’ basketball team was dealt that hand last week and as a result, fell twice to drop to 1-5 on the season.
 
A tough, physical BGM team hosted the Savages last Monday and took control early. The Bears limited Sigourney to five first-quarter points and by an eight-point lead after one. The Savages got going in the second quarter to the tune of 16 points, but defensively, Sigourney could not slow the Bears. BGM scored 19 points in the period to take a 32-21 lead at the half. The Bears then extended their lead substantially with a third period in which they out-scored Sigourney by a count of 20-10 to take a decisive 52-31 lead into the fourth, before closing it out for the 63-41 win. BGM’s Kyle Gritsch had 31 points on 14-of-19 shooting from the field.
