Falls City High improved to 4-0 last Tuesday with a 64-34 rout of St. Joe Bishop Leblond, MO.
The 30-point victory was the largest against the Eagles in school history for FC and marked the Tigers seventh-straight win in the series.
FC, for the third game in a row, shot the ball well from the three-point line. The Tigers connected on 5-of-11 from behind the arc and have knocked down 20-of-42 three-pointers over the last three games after a 5-for-20 effort in their season opener at Syracuse.
“Started a little slow, but we shot well and got some scoring from other guys,” FCHS head coach Don Hogue said. “Proud of the guys’ mental preparation coming into the game.”
Junior Jordy Stoller scored a career-high 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including 2-4 from the three-point line and 5-6 at the free-throw line and also led FC with four assists. Senior big man, Reese Hogue, added 12 season-high points and six rebounds.
Another area the Tigers have dominated thus far is at the free-throw line and Tuesday was no different. FC, which entered the night with a 53-14 advantage in made free throws, converted 21-of-27 offerings while the Eagles finished just 7-of-12. Through four games, FC is 74-for-95 at the charity stripe, compared to 21-for-46 by their opponents.
