BRAINERD, KANSAS – Chase Wiebe scored 13 points and Class 1A’s No. 2 Berean Academy Warriors rolled over rival Remington 54-26 on Tuesday night.
Berean jumped out to a 13-0 lead before the Broncos found the score board and had an extended 16-2 before Remington was able to finally settle into the game.
“We made shots tonight,” Senior Chase Wiebe said. “We were able to play as a team and get the shots we wanted.”
By that point, it was too late. Wiebe was on fire, tying the Broncos in scoring at halftime. The Warriors did everything you expected out of the No. 2 team in the state. They were tenacious and never let the Broncos have any confidence to get back in the game.
Despite the impressive start for Berean, Remington’s Paul Fasnacht provided energy that appeared to be lacking for the Broncos. He dove for loose balls and got buckets when they needed it. He finished with four points on the night, all came when Remington needed it most. The Broncos cut into the lead 16-9 right at the early part of the second quarter.
The Warriors ended the half on an 8-0 run, leading 30-11 at the break.
The Warriors never relented. In the second half, they came out and started out just like they did the first half. An 8-2 run to start the second half made sure there was no question in the second half.
“We’ve had times this season when we’ve let the teams creep back into games,” coach Wiebe said. “Tonight, I thought we did a good job of not letting that happen.”
Berean will travel to Hutch Trinity on Thursday to win their fourth in the last five games. While Remington will get Hutch Trinity on Friday, Feb. 7.
