BELLAIRE – Consistency is something Onaway boys basketball coach Eddy Szymoniak hopes to continue to see from his team.

Facing an upset Bellaire team on the road, Szymoniak’s Cardinals delivered a consistent performance in a 78-60 victory on Friday.

“I thought from the beginning we pretty much controlled the game,” Szymoniak said. “We controlled the tempo. Even when Bellaire would go on little runs, we were able to keep them to little runs and then get back to playing good defense. We had nine guys score tonight, so I thought we did a really good job of distributing the ball, moving it.”

The Cardinals (8-2, 7-1 Ski Valley Conference) came out firing to build a 24-14 lead after one quarter, then held their 10-point lead into halftime. In the third, the Cardinals found enough space to outscore the Eagles 22-16 to take a 57-41 lead into the final period.
