Saints Can’t Shake Pirates

It was almost like a New Year’s resolution Saturday night at the Indy Fieldhouse. Seward began a game with the kind of defensive energy and enthusiasm Seward head coach Bryan Zollinger had been looking for. But the game finished with Independence shooting high percentage shots in a 79-66 win over the Saints.
The Saints led by as many as 12 at 26-14 before a 17-6 Pirate run gave ICC some wind in their sales as the Saints led just 32-31 at halftime. Seward’s Niem Stevenson was called for three charges and had four fouls which greatly affected the game. He still scored 19 in limited time. Marcus Mathieu had 16 and Charles Beauregard had 12. Starter Mitchell Packard was also affected by foul trouble and did not score.
Seward is 13-3 and 3-2 in the Jayhawk while Indy is 11-3 and 2-3 in the conference. Seward hosts Neosho Wednesday night at 8 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net. Sunflower Bank is the buyout sponsor.
