KENT CITY–The Kent City Eagles pulled out a 46-35 win over the White Cloud Indians on Friday evening in a Central State Activities Association matchup.

“Our defense was solid tonight,” said Kent City coach David Ingles. “They can really shoot the ball. We worked hard at running them off the 3-point line into our help. They still made nine triples, but only eight other points.”

White Cloud held a slim 9-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. Kent City took the lead by the half, 20-17.
