Jefferson figured out a way to slow down high-scoring Big Foot and moved into sole possession of first place in the Rock Valley Conference in the process.

The Eagles outscored the Chiefs 35-22 in the second half on their way to a 53-40 win Friday night at Jefferson High.

Friday's game between the conference's last two remaining unbeaten teams was tied 18-18 at halftime before the Eagles (4-0, 4-0 RVC) pulled away.

“To hold them to 40 points was a great team effort,” Jefferson coach Nick Mueller said. “Our kids did an excellent job handling the ball and executing the game plan.”

Jefferson's Parker Fetherston led all players with 14 points, including a 12-of-14 night at the free-throw line.

Big Foot (3-2, 3-1 RVC) was held to a season-low in points. Courtney Schoenbeck had 13 points to lead the Chiefs, who had been averaging 66.3 points per game entering play Friday.
