The Edwardsburg boys basketball team avenge an earlier loss to visiting Berrien Springs and remained tied for first place in the Wolverine Conference West Division in the process.

Despite scoring just four points in the final quarter, the Eddies were able to knock off Berrien Springs 66-53 and improve to 6-2 in the division to remain tied with South Haven with two games left to play.

The path to the title won’t be easy for Edwardsburg as it hosts Dowagiac (5-3) Tuesday night before hosting co-leader South Haven (6-2) Friday night.

The Eddies got off to a quick start, grabbing a 20-11 first quarter lead and extending it to 42-28 heading into halftime.

A 20-point third quarter allowed Edwardsburg to blow open the game and to build up a 62-40 advantage heading into the final quarter.

Dante Razzano led a balanced Edwardsburg attack with 17 points. Isaac Vite finished with 14 and Jackson Gaideski 12.

Nick Little and D’Andre Taylor both had 15 points for the Shamrocks.
