  Pesky Defense Sets Pace As Spartans Top Cards For 14th Win In A Row  
  February 21, 2019 Edition  
      Boardman High School’s cage team celebrated senior night for Shay Eicher, Cam Kreps, Che Trevena and Nick Torres in spectacular fashion, thumping Canfield, 63-41.
      The Spartans used a pesky defense to build a 16-2 lead after one quarter and never looked back, leading 36-16 at halftime.
      Derrick Anderson led all scorers with 16 points to go with 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Daeone Martin had his best all around game of the season with 12 points and 7 rebounds, and Che Trevena had a very balanced game with 10 points, 7 rebounds and 3 steals.
      Tommy Fryda ignited the Spartans in the second quarter with back to back 3’s on his way to 8 points. Cam Kreps dominated inside defensively while scoring 5 points and grabbing 8 rebounds to go with 3 assists. Torres and Ethan Andersen each had 5 points. Andersen also pulled in 9 rebounds and had 5 blocked shots. Shay Eicher rounded out the scoring with 1 free throw, while Zach Ryan, Connor Miller and Charlie Davis all had large contributions on both ends of the floor.
      “Last Friday was a great night for our seniors, they have been great leaders all year and deserve to get a senior night win against Canfield. Defensively we were really happy with our overall effort.
      “We really wore Canfield down in the first half. A couple key plays early in the game were charge attempts by Shay Eicher, Cam Kreps and Connor Miller. We did not get the calls but it shows we are willing to sacrifice for our team,” Boardman Head Coach Pat Birch said.
      The win was Boardman’s 14th in a row, improving their record to 18-3 (9-0 AAC). The Spartans will finish out the regular season this Friday at Austintown.
