SIGOURNEY—On January 20, the Sigourney Savages hosted the Keota Eagles for a South Iowa Cedar league matchup. The Savages bested the Eagles by a final score of 51-29. 

The game began with Sigourney pushing to a 16-6 lead by the conclusion of the first quarter. By halftime, the Savages lead was at 25-25. They kept up the momentum to the tune of out-scoring the Eagles 26-14 in the second half en route to a 51-29 victory.

The Savages had three players hit the double digit mark. The Savages leading scorer on the night was junior Carly Goowin with 18 points. Sophomore Joesphine Moore was the second leading scorer with 12 points. Lastly, senior Zoe Webb finished the night with 11 points. 

The Eagles leading scorer on the night was senior Nicole Clarahan with 13 points. Sophomore Kimberly Clarahan was the main paint presence for the Eagles, as she amassed seven rebounds.

Sigourney head coach Schay Moore encapsulated the game with, “I was very pleased with our defensive effort overall.  It was very nice to see three of our players in double figures.  Zoe Webb had a great stat line for the night with 11 pts, 7 boards, and 3 steals.  She was a great compliment to Carly(18) and Jo (12).”

Keota head coach Jeffrey Sprouse recapped the game with, “It was a tough physical game. Sigourney played very well. I thought we did not handle the contact very well. We have to learn to continue to attack when contact happens. We play our best when we stay consistent, not too high, not too low. Last night maybe I didn't necessarily do that. It’s on me to help guide them through that.”

The Savages advance to 10-7 on the season, with a conference record of 7-5. They will return to action on January 23, when they visit the Highland Huskies.

The Eagles advance to 6-11, with a conference record of 5-7. They will return to action on January 24, when they visit the Iowa Valley Tigers.
