Rainier Wins Second Straight After Strong Third Frame


The Rainier boys basketball team didn’t get off to the start it wanted, but thanks to a strong third quarter run and scoring galore, the Mountaineers upended Onalaska at home, 73-46, Friday night. 

The Mountaineers (record) got a game-high 23 points from Ian Sprouffske and 20 points from David Cano to pace the scoring with some inconsistent defensive play. 

“It is incredible to see what we can be when we focus defensively and share the ball on the offensive end,” Mountaineers coach Ben Sheaffer said. “Thomas Ronne ignited us on both ends and David Cano’s leadership helped get us going in the second half.” 

On the other end, the Loggers are still looking to put the pieces together. Kole Taylor had a team-high 19 points to lead Ony in the scoring column. They’ll play Mossyrock on Monday in a non-league game, while the Mountaineers look to keep it going against the Vikings on Wednesday.
