Danville Too Much for St. Albert


March 5th, 2012 by Jim Field

Danville had too many weapons and used them all to beat St. Albert 68-39 in a first round Class 1-A boys state tournament game Monday in Des Moines.  The Falcons were held to 30% shooting making just 13 of 43.  Danville shot 56% making 28 of 50 attempts.  The Bears led 30-11 at halftime and finished the game with a big rebounding advantage of 39-18.  Steven Soukup had 18 points to lead the Bears, his twin brother Michael had 16 and Collin Bartsch had 15.  St. Albert was led by Connor Thomas with 15 points and JD Culjat had 10.  The Falcons end the year with a mark of 14-11, while the defending 1-A runner-up Bears will play Nodaway Valley in Thursday’s semi-finals.
