The Caledonia Warriors and St. Charles Saints played a very entertaining basketball game on Friday night in St. Charles. The Warriors were able to pull away in the second half to get the 84-57 win.

The Warriors and Saints traded buckets throughout the first half, with each team starting out with some hot shooting. The Saints led early before Caledonia battled back to control much of the first half. Then, the Saints made their push and led 36-35 lead in the half but the Warriors were able to get a bucket, then force a turnover and get another bucket before the break to take a 39-36 lead into the half.

The Warriors kept the pressure on in the second half and did a brilliant job of finishing the rim. Eli King and Noah King both finished with over 20 points while Sam Privet added in 18, en route to earning our Kingsley Mercantile Game Ball award. Kooper Vaughn and Chase Walters led the scoring for St. Charles, while Sam Lewis had double-digit rebounds and a couple of blocks.

It was an entertaining basketball game, and both teams played well. The Warriors proved why they are ranked no.1 in the state with a strong second half that was made possible by attacking the rim and turning up the dial on the defensive end of the floor.

The Warriors moved to 7-0 with the win, while the Saints fell to 2-4.
