Osakis used a big second half to beat the Royals before falling victim to a second-half run by Staples-Motley in a 72-56 loss a day later. Osakis and Staples-Motley were tied at 30 apiece on Friday before the Cardinals pulled away behind 42 second-half points.

The Silverstreaks shot 42 percent as a team against Staples-Motley and were led by Boogaard with 13 points. Hunter Scherr added 12 points and Luke Wolbeck finished with 10 points and seven rebounds.

A night earlier, it was a second-half run for Osakis that proved to be the difference against Royalton. The Royals held a two-point lead at the break before Osakis outscored them 32-13 over the final 18 minutes.

Boogaard was again the catalyst with 15 points, three rebounds and seven steals. Lane Berberich added 10 points and six steals on a night where Osakis stole the ball 24 times.

The Silverstreaks (2-4, 1-1 Prairie) were scheduled to be at Long Prairie-Grey Eagle last night, Tuesday, before going to Henning on Thursday and Melrose on Saturday of this week.
