After Batavia cut the Geneva lead to four in the third quarter Friday, Geneva coach Phil Ralston called a timeout.
“Remember what we said you had to do to come in here?” Ralston said. “You had to play aggressive. We couldn’t worry about what the officials were going to call. We could only worry about what we could do.”
The Vikings took that message to heart, and remained unbeaten this season in their Upstate Eight River opener. A 13-3 spurt from that point on helped Geneva pull away and secure a 58-40 win.
