SPEARFISH — Spearfish scored only four points in the third quarter’s final six minutes Tuesday night and fell 69-47 to Rapid City Stevens in a varsity boys’ basketball game played at the Spearfish High School gym.

“They (Stevens) stopped us in transition,” said Spearfish head coach Erik Skoglund, whose team led 33-28 when the key stretch began. “Now we’ve got to play five on five, which is a whole lot harder than four on three, four on two, five on three, stuff like that.”

Rapid City Stevens built a 21-11 lead after the first quarter of play. The margin reached 12 points (23-11) early in the second period on Jaden Haefs’ layup.

Tyler Huber and Seth Hamilton connected from the field for Spearfish. Hamilton’s 3-point field goal brought the Spartans within 23-16.

Spearfish cut the margin to 23-20 after Tony Serrano and Teysean Eaglestaff scored. Trey
