The Burros traveled to LeRoy-Ostrander on Tuesday, Dec. 10, defeating the Cardinals 68-44.
With 30 points from beyond the arc, Lanesboro's patented outside game was hitting on all cylinders. The Cardinals only got 44 shots from the field, compared to 63 for the visitors. A big reason for that was alert play by Burro defenders, who recorded a 16-0 edge in steals.
Lanesboro went to 3-1 on the young season, while LeRoy-Ostrander dropped to 1-3 overall, 0-3 SEC.
Luke Rogers scored 26 points (including four buckets from beyond the arc). Kole Ruud had 22 (four three-pointers). Garrett Boggs hit every shot he took (one trey, two two-pointers, two free throws). Tylar Miller came off the bench for five points, Zachary Voeltz scored four, and Eric Holst two.
Rogers had seven rebounds, while Ruud grabbed six. Boggs had three boards. Will Semmen came off the bench for four rebounds.
LHS had 15 assists with 11 turnovers. The Cards totaled 12 assists with only eight turnovers.
L-O out-rebounded the Burros 32-25, and blocked two shots. But it wouldn't make up for more and better shooting by the guests, who hit 30 percent from downtown, 57 percent from two-point range, 100 percent (4-4) from the line.
The Cardinals hit 25 percent from beyond the arc, 44 percent of their twos, and seven of 10 from the foul line.
LeRoy-Ostrander was led by Zach Royston (13 points, seven rebounds). Nate Bunne scored 11, passed for eight assists, and grabbed three boards. Josh Royston added nine points, seven rebounds.
LHS was scheduled to host Grand Meadow on Monday, Dec. 16. Look for full details in next week's Republican-Leader. The following night the Burros travel to Lewiston-Altura. On Thursday Lanesboro hosts Glenville-Emmons.
