2-13 Prep Roundup: Poehls' late 3-pointer helps Cadott boys basketball top Fall Creek in overtime

Mason Poehls


CADOTT — Mason Poehls’ 3-pointer late in overtime helped the Cadott boys basketball team earn a 63-60 win over Fall Creek on Thursday evening.

Poehls finished with a game-high 26 points, including three of his team’s six 3-pointers. Tegan Ritter scored a season-best 17 points and Eddie Mittermeyer added nine points as Cadott (6-11, 2-10) won its third game in four days.

“They kept in it,” Cadott coach Dusty Burish said of his team. “We gave up one big 3 right at the end (of regulation). Fall Creek tied it on us, and we went into overtime, kept our heads up and just worked as hard as we could. Mason hit a big 3 in the corner — had me really nervous — but he hit a big 3 in the corner and our defense prevailed.”

Cadott also earned convincing wins over Boyceville and Augusta on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

“I think they’re starting to see it,” Burish said of his team ability. “I’ve always seen it, always through the season me and the assistant coaches have said it to them all the way through the season. But I think they’re starting to see it and really believe in themselves.”

Teigan Ploeckelman had 16 points for Fall Creek (9-9, 5-7).

Cadott hosts Turtle Lake on Monday.
