North Sevier basketball had a big week of wins as they traveled to Beaver on Wednesday and hosted Freedom Prep Academy on Friday night. “We had a great week!” said Coach Shepherd. “After the Enterprise game last Saturday there was a feeling that it was going to be a turning point for us. On Wednesday as a team we felt like it was a must win. The boys got it done. It was an OT thriller. Ethan Fielding stepped up and had his best game of the year and we hit some big shots and had crucial stops in OT. “Beaver came out on top 15-9 at the end of the first quarter but a big 16 point quarter by North Sevier put the Wolves up 25-19 going into the half. The third quarter was close as the Wolves scored 12 and Beaver 11, but 13 points by Beaver in the fourth forced the game into overtime. 10 points later by the Wolves in OT ended the hard fought, close game in their favor 53-50. This is the first time in seven years North Sevier has beat the Beavers! The team was led by Senior Ethan Fielding with 24 points, 3 rebounds and 4 steals, Randy Elmer had 14 points with 1 rebound, 1 assist, and 2 steals, and Keaton Hallows had 8 points and 1 rebound. Keaton Rosquist added 5 points and 2 assists, Ryker Frischknecht 1 point, 4 rebounds and 5 steals, and Kyson Bosshardt 1 point, 1 rebound, and 1 steal. Cauy Williams also added a rebound. Freedom Prep Academy came to Salina Friday night and the Wolves swept them away 93-44 with many of the North Sevier underclassmen getting varsity minutes. Fielding and Elmer both scored 15, Bosshardt 14, Rosquist 11, Frischknecht 10, Greyson Bennett 9, Tate Goble 7, Cauy Williams 5, Jacob Johnson 5 and Trayton Christensen 2.
Friday was all about keeping it rolling and taking care of business. Any win is big, and momentum is such a huge thing. We have a couple big games before Christmas break and the boys are starting to hit their stride. Still room for improvement but excited to see these guys keep moving forward,” said Coach Shepherd.
This week the team will travel to Piute on Friday, December 17 then to Parowan on the 21st.
