In the midst of their longest road stretch of the season, the Emery Spartans traveled to Beaver Thursday night. After escaping with a one-point win last season in Castle Dale, the Spartans weren’t so lucky this year and were sent away with a 65-52 loss.
Junior center Beau Roundy returned for the first time this season after suffering multiple illnesses, which left him with an enlarged spleen. Roundy scored four points on the night. Dillon Wilstead (13) and Tyson Roper (11) were the lone Spartans in double figures.
Emery (4-3, 0-0 Region 15) won’t be afforded much time to analyze the game as it will be in Parowan Friday night to play the Rams (3-3, 0-0 Region 13). The two met in last year’s 2A fifth-place game, in which the Spartans beat the Rams 62-57. Wilstead scored a game-high 25 points in the game.
Emery will next take the floor Dec. 30 at Carbon.
