East Troy High School’s boys basketball team won another battle for first place in the Southern Lakes Conference.


After rejecting Elkhorn’s bid last week, the defending champion Trojans turned back second-place Delavan-Darien with 67-51 victory Tuesday night on the Comets’ court.


In notching its 17th straight conference win over two seasons, East Troy gained a two-game lead with a 5-0 record in this year’s Southern Lakes race. The Trojans, No. 4 in the AP Division 2 state ratings, also improved to 11-1 for the season.


Kyle Jones had three-point goals in a pivotal 17-9 second quarter and scored 17 of his 20 points in the first half to put East Troy in control against Delavna-Darien (6-5, 3-2). The Trojans led only 17-15 after the first quarter but were up 34-24 at halftime, and the Comets never got closer than eight the rest of the way.


Alex Bondar and Allen Loth followed Jones in the East Troy scoring with 17 and 15 points, respectively. Aaron Logterman paced Delavan-Darien with 12, and Joe Kiemen had 11.
