Sinkenbring leads Badgers to big win over rival Cardinal

MIDDLEFIELD—Berkshire used the inspiration of a rivalry game to collect its first win of the season. The Badgers got off to a fast start and never wavered in a 61-34 win at Cardinal on Tuesday.

Chase Crea scored six of his 12 points in the first quarter as the Badgers built a 14-6 lead. He passed the baton—or basketball—to Jake Sinkenbring, who scored 10 points in the second quarter on the way to a game-high 25 to push the Berkshire lead to 31-16 at the break.

Lenny Barcikowski led the way for the Badgers in the third quarter as he scored four of his 12 to help Berkshire edge Cardinal in the quarter, 12-10.

The Badgers finished off the Huskies with an 18-point fourth quarter.

Sinkenbring scored 11 points in the final eight minutes to eliminate any chance of a Husky rally.

J.T. Bergemeier added nine points for the Badger, Jacob Brown contributed with seven, Garrett Bosse scored five and Jay Wolfe and Alec Yalanty finished with two and one, respectively.

Hunter Schaeffer led Cardinal with 13 points and Robbie Granny finished with seven.

Berkshire improved to 1-2 while Cardinal dropped to 1-3.
