Geneva turns it over, but turns it up to top Elgin

SHARE Geneva turns it over, but turns it up to top Elgin

It would be easy to call Geneva coach Phil Ralston a perfectionist after he complained Tuesday about several turnovers in the Vikings’ 72-53 Upstate Eight River victory.

Then again, it’s his stomach and his team’s eight-game winning streak.

“I dwell on turnovers,” he said. “Turnovers. … I think I’m going to get an ulcer. That stuff just eats at my gut.”

Before the Vikings threw the ball away repeatedly in the second and fourth quarters, they played defense early much better than they had in the previous 57-47 victory over rival Batavia. It was that strong start which kept Ralston from seeking a bottle of Pepto-Bismol.
