HANNIBAL - Preston Boswell led a trio of Magnolia scorers in double figures with 23 points as the Blue Eagles routed River.

The sophomore point guard also dished out five assists as Magnolia improved to 2-3 on the season.

He had a lot of help as Zach Wilhoite added 20 points and blocked four shots and Spencer Campbell nailed three 3-pointers and finished the night with 18 points.

Sophomore Mitch Winters also added nine points and nine rebounds as the Blue Eagles won for the second straight game after starting the season at 0-3 against a challenging schedule.

Magnolia raced out to a 32-11 lead before Coach Dave Tallman called off the dogs later in the second half after the score got out of hand.

Eric Dierkes had 14 points to lead the River effort and teammates Joe Flannery added 13.
