The Trojans would only score two points the rest of the way as the Blue Devils cruised to an easy victory. The Trojans were led by Kelsee Van Haalen who scored a team high 15 points but was out dueled by the freshmen Blue Devils as freshmen Jensen Archibald and Morgan Dunn would both score in double figures to lead the Blue Devils. Pleasantville girls’ Head Coach Aaron Fichter was proud of the effort from Van Haalen but wants his other girls to step up and buy into what they can do. The boys’ would fall in a more contested game as Martensdale-St. Marys would take down the Trojans in overtime. The Trojans led by senior Brady Elder’s 35 points would take the game into overtime tied at 58 before the Blue Devils would take control and cruise to a win inside the Pleasantville high school gym.
