Elk Mound boys blindsided by Spring Valley, cut off by GC

By Cara L. Dempski

Elk Mound boys’ basketball coach Mike Kessler has, thus far, been impressed with the contributions from his bench this season.

He named Nathaniel Schreiber, Jake Mentzel and Brandon Redwine as helpful factors at Spring Valley despite the Mounders’ sound defeat by the Cardinals February 13. Rob Bosshart’s flock buzzed past the Mounders 62-48 in the contest.

The Elk Mound squad then headed to Glenwood City February 16 for their second meeting this season with the Hilltoppers. The contest was a fight to the finish, with both teams tied at 56 when regulation ended. The matchup would go to the Hilltoppers, though, after they edged past the Mounders for a 61-59 win last Friday in overtime.
