  • Northeast split a pair of high school basketball games with old CNC foe Erie at Erie High School on Friday.
    The Northeast boys improved to 14-4 on the season with a 50-41 win over the Red Devils — their first win in three games against former CNC rivals Southeast, Frontenac and Erie this season. Southeast beat Northeast by two points and Frontenac won on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Brett Macary.
    Northeast jumped out ahead 16-4 after one quarter and senior forward Chase Cleland scored nine of his game-high 16 points in the first stanza.
    J.T. Richardson added 14 points for Northeast; big men Cody McCloud and Noah Popejoy had seven and five points, respectively. Freshman guard Antonio Slingluff added six and Northeast head coach Matt Hiatt said the freshman played great on both sides of the ball.
    Keaton Page led the Red Devils with 15 points and Keith Marquardt had 13.
    All roads on the boys side of the Three Rivers League lead to Arma on Feb. 17, when the Vikings and the Uniontown Eagles — both currently 7-0 in TRL games — play on Northeast Homecoming. Both the Vikings and the Eagles are 2 1/2 games ahead of the Crest Lancers and the St. Paul Indians.
    The Northeast girls (7-11) lost 44-30 to Erie, despite 15 points by senior Jessica Choate and seven by freshman Kaylee Bogina.
    Baxter Springs girls 58, Riverton 32
    The Lions blew open a 24-15 game at halftime with a 19-4 third quarter, as Baxter junior guard Nina Spence heated up with 14 of her 21 points in the first stanza after halftime.
    Tasha Wampler led all scorers with 22 points, as Wampler and Spence combined for 43 points. Taylor Price led Riverton with 15.
    Baxter Springs (12-5, 3-2 CNC) plays a non-league road game Monday against Commerce, Okla., 3-15 this season.
    Riverton boys 51, Baxter Springs 30
    The Rams (16-1) have consistently outplayed their opponents in the fourth quarter this season — for example, both wins over Frontenac (Lancer Classic title game and their CNC League tilt) and a CNC win over Girard.
    On Friday night, Riverton extended its lead in the fourth with a 19-6 advantage on the Lions. Greyson Spriggs, Chandler Underhill (Baxter Springs transfer) and Hunter Deckard combined for all 19 points — Spriggs seven, Underhill six and Deckard six.
    Spriggs finished with a game-high 13 points and Underhill and freshman Landon North each had 11. Colton Krokroskia led Baxter Springs with 10.
    Fort Scott boys 60, Iola 53
    The Tigers (13-4, 4-1 SEK) parlayed a 11-point free-throw advantage into a seven-point win Friday night, despite being outscored in the second half 35-22 by the Mustangs.
    Cameron Woodring led Fort Scott with 15 points and Tyler Adams and Matt Wright each added 14 on Homecoming. Iola's Braden Larson paced all scorers with 17.

    The Tigers (6-11, 2-2) applied the defensive clamps on the Fillies on Fort Scott Homecoming, as Iola shot only 24 percent from the floor. Fort Scott held Kendra Taiclet and Kelsey Larson to a combined 14 points (Taiclet 8, Larson 6).
    Mallory Shelton and Brianne Lawrence each had nine points for the Tigers and Katren Reinbolt added eight.
    Coffeyville boys 84, Labette County 57
    The Golden Tornado (12-5, 3-2 SEK) piled on the points Friday night, scoring 49 of their 84 total after halftime — 25 in the third and 24 in the fourth.
    Balanced scoring was the key for Coffeyville — five players in double figures and nine players with at least four points. James Newton led the way with 17, followed by Darren Lewis (13), DeMarkco Carr (13), Josh Mitchell (10), Devin Knight (10), Nash Nelson (6), James Jones (5), Elijah Jones (4) and Quinton Hershey (4).
