Silverstreak boys stop St. John's Prep

Matt Laven and Leif Nomeland got the Osakis boys' basketball team back on the right track in the Silverstreaks 66-39 win over St. John's Prep last Thursday.

Matt Laven and Leif Nomeland got the Osakis boys' basketball team back on the right track in the Silverstreaks 66-39 win over St. John's Prep last Thursday.

Laven scored a game-high 21 points for the second straight game and Nomeland added 17 points and 18 rebounds to help move Osakis to 4-1 in the Prairie Conference.

Those 17 points were enough to move Nomeland past Stephanie Roggenbuck as Osakis' all-time leading scorer. Nomeland ended the night with 1,678 points in his career, surpassing the 1,664 mark that Roggenbuck ended with last season.

The Silverstreaks jumped all over the Johnnies in the first half, building a 21-point lead by the break after holding them to eight first-half points.

"I like where we are at," head coach Chris Stroup said. "This group of players is starting to find their identity, with each player settling more and more into their various roles."

The win for Osakis did not come without a cost, though. Sophomore guard Dominic Baker was sidelined in the game because of an injury that Stroup said could keep him out of action for a couple of weeks.

The Silverstreaks will see how they fare without him tonight when they welcome Eagle Valley to Osakis for another Prairie Conference battle.
