Cavaliers Surprise Suring On Opening Night, Bulldogs Roll

Looking for one of their better hardwood campaigns in recent memory, the STAA Cavaliers opened up M-O Conference play with a lopsided 64-38 home win over visiting Suring Tuesday. Now 2-0 overall, the Cavaliers used a pair of huge scoring spurts 18-7 in period two and 17-5 in the third frame to pull off the win.

Elsewhere in league play, three-time defending champion Peshtigo (2-0, 1-0) stretched its conference winning streak to 53 games with a 57-6 win over host Niagara, Crivitz knocked off Coleman 33-24 and Gillett leveled Lena 65-27.

Allowing just one bucket the entire game, the Bulldogs had no trouble notching their 53rd straight M-O win with a 57-6 whipping of Niagara. Peshtigo was up 10-zip at the first break and 29-3 by intermission. Over the final two frames, the Bulldogs held the upper hand at 16-3 and 12-0.
