ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

After being swept by Wapello last season, Iowa Mennonite returned the favor with a 58-51 win on Monday night.

Iowa Mennonite is now 9-5 on the season and 8-4 in conference play, moving one game ahead of Wapello for third in the SEISC North.

For the second time this season, Jeremy Niemeyer had a big game against Wapello and poured in 22 points to lead all scorers.

Wapello’s Keaton Mitchell scored 21 to pace the Indians. Caden Thomas had 12 points for Wapello.

Iowa Mennonite is scheduled to be back in action on Thursday against Winfield-Mount Union (1-13).

IMS drops pair

Iowa Mennonite locked in and outscored Pekin 15-7 in the fourth quarter to finish overtime, but couldn’t find the basket again in a 55-48 loss last Thursday.

Iowa Mennonite had a two-point lead with under 20 seconds to go, but Pekin’s Caleb Comstock was fouled and hit a pair of free throws to send things to overtime.

The win marked the 10th straight for Pekin.

Eli Ours had 17 points to lead all players.

In a road trip last Tuesday to Mediapolis, a 21-8 fourth quarter for Mediapolis decided the game.

Cody Jones led Iowa Mennonite with 10 points on the night.

Iowa Mennonite coach Dwight Gingerich said the early fourth-quarter burst forced Iowa Mennonite to foul as Mediapolis played stall ball, widening the gap.

Iowa Mennonite now has three conference games remaining. They host Winfield-Mount Union, travel to Columbus and finish out the conference slate with a home game against Highland on Jan. 31.
