    The Eagles came out hot, jumping to a 10-0 lead and eventually leading 18-1. Wind River finally came untracked but for the first 12 minutes of play, the Eagles pulled down defensive rebounds to end wild shots by the Cougars and turned them into fast break opportunities.

    The 3-point arc was friendly for the visitors as well with the Eagles hitting eight on the game.

    Paced by hot shooting guard Cadyn Lonedog who tallied 25 points, including five long-range bombs from the promised land, a pair of them beyond 25 feet, St. Stephen’s threatened to put the mercy rule in place with their fast-paced attack, but they cooled off late in the second period and the Cougars played even with them in the third.

    A late rally by Wind River closed the gap but St. Stephen’s lead was never in danger.
