LUVERNE - Fulda was strong in the first half and Luverne picked it up in the second.
In the end, the Raiders’ 17-point halftime advantage was enough to hold off the Cardinals’ comeback effort for an impressive 56-53 nonconference boys basketball win on the road Saturday.
The key to success for Fulda was ball security. While Luverne finished with a pedestrian total of 12 turnovers, the Raiders had only six miscues. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Leighton Gehl went off.
The sophomore guard poured in 30 points, was 11-for-18 from the field and hit seven threes - on 13 attempts - to lead Fulda. It finished the first half with a 34-17 lead.
Luverne got back into it in the second, out-pointing its guest 36-22 in the final 18 minutes. That was largely due to a strong performance by Nick Overgaard. He finished 8-of-20 from the floor for 22 points to go with three rebounds, three assists and three steals.
Along with Gehl’s big day, Justin Dierks and Josh Gunderman scored eight points each for the Raiders with Brian Fenske pulling down seven rebounds. Quinton Siebenahler helped the home team with eight points and seven boards while Cole Bosch had nine points.
The Cardinals’ undoing was a 5-of-12 performance from the free throw line.
Fulda (2-2 overall, 1-0 Red Rock Conference) returns to league play at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when it travels to Edgerton. The Cardinals (1-1 overall, 1-0 Big South Conference) are in Okabena for another nonconference tilt with Heron Lake-Okabena at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
