PRIEST RIVER — The Spartan boys continued to struggle last week as they lost at home to Kellogg 61-39 Jan. 30 and North Idaho Christian School 69-45 Feb. 1. Head coach Kevin Wylie was pleased with the team’s performance against Kellogg, which is the fifth-ranked team in the state.

“We did a lot of good things against them. Early on the lead bounced back and forth. Unfortunately our scoring hurt our chances to keep it close. Our defense played them pretty good.” He said he looks forward to playing Kellogg again later this season, adding that he thought the Spartans “can really give them a game.”

The Spartans began well against the NICS Royals by scoring on their first four possessions. However, the bottom dropped out in the second quarter when the home team put up a mere four points, causing the Spartans to head to the locker room down by 13 points. Wylie said the team’s inability to consistently score points has cost them dearly over the season. “All season we have struggled to score consistently. Our guys work super hard and always put up a battle. We put a lot of time putting up shots in practice, working on ways to score or attack in different situations. I blame myself for our struggle to provide more scoring. I have to do a better job to prepare them.”
