MOKANE — Trey Snodgrass came up with 19 of his game-high 24 points in the second half to spur the No. 4 seed Vienna Eagles to a 57-44 victory over the No. 5 North Callaway Thunderbirds in the first round of the South Callaway Tournament on Tuesday night.
North Callaway (5-6) trailed 13-10 after the first quarter, but outscored Vienna 13-10 in the second quarter to pull even at 23-all at halftime. The Eagles, though, outscored the Thunderbirds 21-8 in the third quarter to go up 44-31.
Senior guard Cody Cash finished with 23 points — including three 3-pointers — and handed out four assists to lead North Callaway. Sophomore guard Matthew Weber provided 11 points.
Bayrd Vanscoy produced the game's first eight points and ended up with 13 for Vienna.
"The third quarter killed us," Thunderbirds head coach Matt Miller said. "We just didn't move our feet on defense and we gave them too many easy shots.
"We have to start making better passes and playing better defense. We made too many mistakes against a good ballclub."
North Callaway squares off against No. 8 seed New Bloomfield in the consolation semifinals at 6 p.m. Thursday in the middle school gym. New Bloomfield tumbled to top-seeded Montgomery County 69-33 in first-round play Tuesday night.
