Galesburg Silver Streaks Boys Basketball vs. Dixon Dukes


The GHS Silver Streaks fell tonight 56-50 against the Dixon Dukes to close out post-season play for the Streaks. It was a hard fought game all around with Dixon taking an early lead at 11-9 in the 1st quarter. They continued their lead into the 2nd for the majority of the quarter, but right before halftime Galesburg got the lead out with an 11 point drive to pull ahead 26-23 by half. From then on it was a lot of back and forth between the two teams. Dixon squeezed out a lead by the end of the 3rd 39-35 and then proceeded to build on that into the 4th.  The Streaks fought hard to keep it close but could never really regain their footing in the final minutes. Dixon held on and ultimately closed it out by running out the final 11 seconds to take the Regional Championship at Geneseo 56-50.

The Streaks finish the year 18-13. We look forward to another strong year with the Streaks next year. Our Dave’s Autobody Crunchtime Player of the Game was Justin Endthoff.
