An even dozen! Pekin boys run win streak to 12

PEKIN — A red-hot start kept the red-hot Pekin boys basketball team rolling on Friday night. The Panthers outscored Louisa-Muscatine 19-4 in the opening quarter on the way to a 53-35 Southeast Iowa Superconference north victory that pushes Pekin’s lone winning streak to 12 straight games.

“Our defense was impressive in the first quarter,” Pekin head boys basketball coach Ken Hutchinson said. “We caused 14 turnovers in that quarter. We lost a little intensity in the second and third quarters, but that will give us something to work on in practice.”

The Panthers’ winning streak and SEISC North title hopes will be put to the test next week. Pekin next travels to Mediapolis on Tuesday night and will return home to host IMS in a game that could decide the conference championship.

MSAE Boys blast Harmony for first win

FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Maharishi School Boys basketball team (1-11) finally made its way into the victory column Friday night at the MSAE Fieldhouse as they dealt visiting Harmony a solid Southeast Iowa south 89-51 defeat.

After a strong 19-10 first quarter and an evenly fought second quarter, the Pioneers ran the Rockets out of the gym in the third, 31-8, led by the red-hot 3-point shooting of senior Suraj Pullapantula. Pullapantula scored a game-high 22 points and went 7-10 from beyond the arc with most of those in the third quarter.

All twelve Pioneer players played roughly equal minutes, with eleven making it into the scoring column. The Pioneers employed a rare height advantage to out-rebound Harmony 43-15.

The Pioneers return to the floor in Donnellson on Tuesday for an SEISC south matchup at Central Lee.
