When things get a little stagnant, use Febreeze. Or, just run your offense.

The St. Joseph Flyers started slow but began to breathe easier in the second quarter en route to a 56-51 win over the Raceland Rams Thursday.

The Flyers trailed 13-11 after the first quarter, then outscored the Rams 19-4 in the second quarter as they took charge of the game.

“We were stagnant in the first quarter, but we had good ball movement in the second quarter and got our offense going,” said Flyers’ coach Jeremy Williams.

Wulf Goheen breathed some air into the Flyers’ offense with 16 points and four assists. Troy Scott and Kyle Williams scored 10 points each, Chris Lewis grabbed 10 rebounds and Joseph Payton had four assists.

“Everyone contributed. Our defense was working in the second half and we were more patient on offense after the first quarter,” said Williams.

Raceland (10-8) was led by Jacob Blair with 11 points. Nathaniel Davidson had five rebounds.

Blair had seven points and Davidson four in the first quarter as the Rams took the lead. Goheen and Scott combined for nine points.

Williams had eight points in the second quarter as St. Joseph built a 30-17 lead at the half.

The Rams cut the deficit to 43-35 after the third quarter as Zach Kelly scored six points, but the Flyers’ held Blair to just two points in the second half.

“Joseph Payton did a good job on (Blair) in the second half,” said Williams.

Lewis had five points for the Flyers in the fourth quarter and Williams sank two foul shots with three seconds to play that extended the lead to 56-51.
