The Edgerton boys basketball team survived an early scare before setting the program record for the best start to a season on Monday night.

The victory moved Edgerton to 13-0 overall and 9-0 in the Rock Valley North. The previous school record for best start to a season was 12-0.

A 12-2 run in the second quarter helped the Tide get right back in the game after trailing 19-11 early.

Jake Zeimet and Adam Converse each scored 10 points for Edgerton.

Chad Herbst scored a game-high 16 points for McFarland, which fell into a tie for third place a 6-3 in the North.
