Coming off great play and both advancing to the championship games of the Burlington Tournament, and having a few extra days off, the Sabetha Bluejays were both dominant on Friday night getting impressive road wins at Silver Lake and forcing a running clock with 30-plus point margins in the fourth quarter.

The back-to-back Burlington champ Bluejays improved to 11-1 on the season and won their fifth game in a row by double-digits. Sabetha held Silver Lake to just three field goals in the entire first half while jumping to a 19-7 first quarter lead and 30-9 halftime advantage.

Maggi Hughes hit a couple treys and scored eight in the opening period while Melinna Schumann also knocked down a triple and scored seven points in the opening eight minutes to set the tone for the night.

Similiar to the girls game, the Sabetha boys came out on fire. Mainly, Gabe Garber, who scored 13 points in the first five minutes of the non-league showdown. Drew Schmelzle also fired up the fans with a follow up slam dunk coming right down the middle of the lane after a missed Sabetha shot.
