Farmington senior Rylan Files (23) pivots with possession during a game against Fox on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020, in Park Hills.

FARMINGTON – Jacob Jarvis compiled 24 points with 11 rebounds, and Farmington shot 53 percent in an 87-62 home triumph over Seckman on Wednesday night.

Rylan Files, Brady White and Tyler Thebeau cracked the starting lineup among six seniors honored prior to tipoff, and contributed to a positive start by the Knights.

Farmington (9-3) received 20 points from Brant Gray, and surged to a 24-13 lead through one quarter before increasing the halftime margin to 52-33.

Jonah Burgess assumed a reserve role for the night, and provided his own double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Bracey Blanton added 12 points, and Files had nine points plus seven rebounds.

Josh Herget netted 21 points for Seckman (5-5), which struggled to 4-of-22 from beyond the arc. Nathan Mertz produced 16 points, and Allen Grahovic scored 12.


North County 61, Herculaneum 28

HERCULANEUM, Mo. – Hanna Politte drained consecutive 3-pointers during a 22-0 run in the first half, and North County dominated Herculaneum for the second time this season.

Nine players scored as the Lady Raiders forced 27 turnovers Wednesday night in a 61-28 road triumph despite connecting on just 5-of-15 from the line.

Politte netted a game-high 12 points, and senior Emily Veach contributed 10 as a reserve. Ella Gant had eight points and five assists for North County (8-1).

Herculaneum (7-6) grabbed an early 8-4 lead when Emily Wiese sank a runner and Paige Fowler added two subsequent free throws.

But North County invoked full-court pressure to shift momentum, and blanked the Lady Blackcats over the next 9 ½ minutes.

Gant scooped in a slashing layup off a steal by Tyler Conkright, then beat the first-quarter buzzer with an open 3-pointer that gave the Lady Raiders a 15-8 advantage.

Politte propelled the visitors to a 27-12 cushion at intermission, along with five first-half steals by Paris Larkin, and North County carried a 22-9 scoring edge in the third quarter.

Veach struck from the perimeter to make it 44-14, and Emma Gaugel converted a 3-point play from a second offensive rebound on her way to seven points.

Junior center Kamryn Winch tallied eight points after the break while also providing 11 rebounds and five blocks for North County.

Wiese paced Herculaneum with 10 points, and Macey Pillard added six points plus seven rebounds.


Ste. Genevieve Quad

STE. GENEVIEVE – Nathan Selby competed at both 138 and 145 pounds, and pinned each of his three opponents Wednesday night of the Ste. Genevieve boys wrestling team.

Dalton McNeal (126) also finished 3-0 in contested bouts with a fall, technical fall and major decision to help the Dragons beat two visiting teams in a quad-match.

Ste. Genevieve posted victories of 53-21 over Windsor and 57-24 against Sikeston before dropping a 48-26 outcome against Class 4 power Jackson.

Bryant Schwent (113) and Gavin Gross (132) recorded single falls while also receiving two forfeits each. Matthew Schmidt (182) and Ryan Schmelzle (285) were each 2-1 with two pins on the night.
