9) Russell (Season: 8-12 This week: 1-0)
Russell’s only game of the week was a home game against Lewis County. The Devils had a huge worth quarter for a lobsided win. The player of the game was certainly Max Cantrell. Cantrell finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. However his biggest contribution was being man to man on O’Keefe.
