Triton Boys Basketball Defeats Kenyon-Wanamingo
The Triton Cobras held off a Kenyon-Wanamingo comeback 65-59 in Dodge Center Saturday night.
Triton ran out to a 36-25 halftime lead burning the Knights for mutliple baskets on fast breaks by having someone run to the other end for easy points after a K-W missed shot.
The Cobras put on a clinic in the first half of inside and outside offense with 5 three point baskets to go along with 20 points in the paint. They continued to attack the basket in the second half with 22 more points in the paint.
Kenyon-Wanamingo finished the game with 24 total lane points.
Triton was the more physical team with 40 rebounds compared to Kenyon-Wanamingo's 26.
The free throw line kept the Knights in the game. They were 15 of 22 compared to Triton's 5 of 9.
The Cobras were led by junior Owen Petersohn's 20 points, 12 in the paint, two three point baskets and 2 free throws. He received the Cashwise Foods and Pharmacy of Owatonna Delivery of the Game for his performance. After the Knights cut the lead to one late in the game, Petersohn delivered a split of a double team roll in the lane layup for Triton.
Senior Haeven Quimby and junior Noah Thomas added 12 points each for the Cobras.
K-W was led by juniors Trevor Steberg with 20 points, Laden Nerison added 16 and Luke Alme contributed 11 points.
The Knights are 3-7 in H-V-L play, 6-9 overall. Triton is 8-4 in the conference, 9-6 overall.
Triton finishes the season by hosting Zumbrota-Mazeppa Monday, going to Winona Cotter Thursday and hosting Stewartville Friday.
Kenyon-Wanamingo sees Lake City in their gym Monday, Goodhue at home Thursday and hosts Rochester Lourdes Friday.
The Section playoffs will have the higher seeds host the first two rounds with the Section Semi-finals or Subsection title game at a neutral site in Section One where the Triton Cobras play.
K-W is in the South Subsection of Section 2AA. If the playoffs began now the Knights would probably host Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial in the first round.
