Edgerton High’s boys basketball team opened the second half on a 10-0 run, overturning a two-point halftime deficit, to pull away from the Brodhead Cardinals for a 68-45 Rock Valley Conference win Saturday in Edgerton.

Donovan Cone scored 23 points to lead the Crimson Tide (16-4, 13-4 RVC) in their sixth straight victory. If Edgerton wins its conference finale Thursday at Jefferson, it would finish no worse than a tie for third.

Brodhead (7-13, 5-11 RVC) suffered its fourth straight loss. Jaden Johnson led the Cardinals with 14 points in the loss. Brodhead led 29-27 at halftime but was outscored 39-18 in the second half.

The Cardinals travel to Evansville on Tuesday.
