Passing, shooting, defense, motion…it all finally worked in a complete game for the Sully Buttes Charger boys as they raced to a 69-48 victory over Timber Lake Tuesday night in Onida.
The Chargers led 19-8 after the first quarter, and 40-24 at the half. Unforced turnovers by the Panthers paved the way to Sully Buttes points, along with red hot shooting from freshman guard Wesley Wittler, who tallied 6-three point shots before he was pulled late in the second half. Wittler finished with 22 points. Senior Landon Hepker added 12, and orchestrated the offense. The Chargers found avenues to the basket with some of the best attack offense they’ve executed this season. The continuous clock was enacted late in the third quarter after Sully Buttes was up 64-32 after three quarters.
The 1-7 Chargers now get a week off before their next game–a home contest against Stanley County January 24th. The 5-4 Timber Lake Panthers also have off until next Tuesday with a home game against Kadoka Area.
