The Seward County Saints needed this. After building momentum with wins over Barton and at Colby, the Saints came back down to earth with a thud Saturday night in the loss to Pratt. But the Saints used a Monday 10 hour round trip to Concordia to win their third in their last four tries 74-69 at Cloud.
Seward and Cloud were tied 31-31 at halftime before Seward led by as many as 13 (58-45) in route to the win. The Saints should have tucked the game away earlier but missed eight straight free throws and were 15-28 from the free throw line. The Saints made up for it with their shooting from the field shooting 48 percent and 16-23 for 70 percent in the second half. Cloud out rebounded the Saints by seven but the Saints only had nine turnovers in the win.
Secean Johnson led the Saints with 21 points and six rebounds. Evan Allen scored 18 with six rebounds while Kevin Sims scored 17 points.
Seward wins their sixth in their last seven tries over Cloud. The Saints are 13-12 overall and 6-6 in the Jayhawk West. The Thunderbirds are 15-10 overall and 2-9 in the Jayhawk West. The Saints host Dodge City for homecoming Saturday night at 8 on B107.5 and kscbnews.net. Pizza Hut is the buyout sponsor.
