ROXANA - The Shells Jake Golenor hit a three-pointer at the buzzer Friday, for his sixth of the night, but that still couldn't keep the Civic Memorial Eagles from taking another win, 75-41.

Eagles head coach Ross Laux said pressing the Shells hard at the start of the game helped the Eagles snag a strong 20-point lead even with Roxana sinking six 3s before the half, 43-23.

"We knew they could shoot, they put it up," Laux said. "We tried to go out the first quarter and set the tone. We really got and out and pressed, but boy can they shoot it."
