Eureka Basketball Victorious in Winter Royalty Game

On Friday, January 31, Eureka hosted a basketball contest between the Eureka Tornadoes and the visiting Fredonia Yellowjackets. The two teams had played before in Fredonia, where the Tornadoes won by over 20 points. Now, during Winter Royalty, both teams were ready to rematch with a fresh mindset.

After senior Terik Crisswell began the scoring for both teams, the Yellowjackets were quick to even the score. However, Eureka senior Ethan Westerman responded in order to secure the Tornadoes’ advantage. Fredonia was not willing to give up, eventually tying the game with three minutes left in the first quarter. In response, Crisswell was able to make two free throws to keep Eureka ahead.
