Here are some local high school varsity sports recaps from Tuesday’s events:

Varsity Boys Basketball: Cincinnatus vs. Brookfield

The Cincinnatus Lions remain unbeaten and have improved their record to 4-0 after beating Brookfield 60-42 Tuesday night. 

The Lions were led by Scott Schuyler (21 points & 2 steals), Tyler Liddle (12 points & 10 rebounds), Cason Stafford (11 points, 9 rebounds & 3 steals), Kooper Vosburg (9 points & 11 rebounds), and Canden Stafford (7 points, 3 rebounds & 2 steals). 

Brookfield was led by Kaden Ondrako (19 points) and Quentin Moon (14 points).

Varsity Boys Basketball: McGraw vs. Madison

The McGraw Eagles lost a tough game to Madison with a score of 32-62. With this loss, the Eagles are now 1-3. 

The Eagles were led by Cameron Nitti (10 points), Antonio Underwood (4 points), Nate Stiles (4 points), Nolan Knickerbocker (4 points), and Caleb Epp (4 points). 

Madison was led by Hayden Dumas (25 points) and Ethan Rivers (23 points). 

“Our guys moved the ball well tonight,” said McGraw Assistant Coach Greg Driscoll. “It was probably the best offense of game we’ve had as a team. We haven’t really had a lot of team basketball played all season, but with our leading scorer Quentin Burdick out, it gave us a chance to let other guys step up and handle the moment. We can’t take away from Madison. They got two very good players that are also well coached. Hats off to them.”

According to McGraw Head Coach Brian Driscoll, Quentin Burdick should be back for their upcoming home game against Brookfield on Tuesday (December 21st) at 7pm.
