Saints Defense Turns the Tide with Cowley

Brock Kappelmann - December 12, 2021 8:38 am

After a porous defensive performance against Garden City on Wednesday, the Seward defense saved the game Saturday night in the Green House.  Seward beat the defending Region 6 champion Cowley Tigers 66-56.  The Saints held the Tigers to under 30 percent shooting.

It was a low scoring first half.  The Saints led 13-6 early on and held the advantage for most of the first half.  Cowley rallied and led 25-24 at the half.  The Tigers led 28-24 early in the second half before SCCC grabbed a 33-31 lead and never trailed again.  Seward led 41-35 with 13:41 to play and led 44-37, 50-42, and led 53-44 with 6:20 to play.  That’s when the whistle turned on the Saints and Cowley got back in the game at the foul line.  They pulled to within two at 53-51 with 5:56 to play.  Wil Dubinsky drilled a clutch left corner three for a 56-51 lead.  The Saints lead ballooned to 59-51 with 3:48 to go.

Seward shot 44 percent from the field which is above their season average of about 40 percent.  SCCC made 12-33 three pointers for 36 percent.  Seward held Cowley to 4-26 shooting from three.  Seward won despite being out rebounded 39-30.  Seward led in assists 16-4.  Seward grabbed 12 steals to Cowley’s seven.

Seward wins their fourth straight at home with Cowley and leads the series 24-12 against the Tigers.  Seward snaps a three game losing skid.  Seward is 5-6 overall and 3-4 in the Jayhawk while Cowley falls to 6-7 and 2-5 in the KJCCC.

Seward plays at Northwest Tech Monday night at 8:30 central time on B107.5 and the KSCB and The Legend App.
