Lake Geneva Badger’s boys basketball team hit Racine St. Catherine’s with a 1-2 punch this season, and the second blow was the clincher.


Badger High assured itself of no less than a tie for the last Lakeshore Conference championship by snapping the Angels’ 10-game winning streak, 60-47, in Thursday night’s rematch at Lake Geneva.


With a repeat of December’s 53-38 rout of St. Catherine’s at Racine, the Badgers (13-3, 10-0) put themselves two games ahead of the second-place Angels (12-4, 7-2) in the loss column with only two games left on Badger’s conference schedule.


Kevin Wieters and Jimmy Merrit set the pace as Badger took control of St. Cartherine’s in a 24-13 second quarter for a 33-22 halftime lead. The Angels got within one point in the third quarter, but the Badgers’ second surge carried them into the final period with a decisive 49-38 lead.


Badger, which had 27 three-point goals in its last two games, took apart the Angels with more drives to the basket. Wieters and Merrit each collected 13 points, which included none of the Badgers’ three three-pointers.


Jake Thomas and Jarvar Lawson led St. Catherine’s with 19 and 17 points, respectively.
