Kewanee High took on their second straight Western Big Six opponent to begin the 2021-22 season when they took on United Township High School at the Geneseso Thanksgiving Shootout Friday morning.

Kewanee struggled in the first quarter to gain much momentum while having difficulty getting shots to fall and turning the ball over early in the contest. UT led after the first 10 to 4 with the Boilermakers defense keeping them in the game early.

The second quarter was much of the same as UT stretched out their lead and took a 26-10 half-time lead.

The Boilermakers, led by Niko Powe’s game high 20 points, played an up and down 3rd and 4th quarters and never could cut into the UT lead. Kewanee drops to 0-2 after the 65-28 loss.

Kewanee will play two games Saturday, November 27 as the Geneseo Thanksgiving Shootout comes to an end. Kewanee plays Rock Falls at 10:30AM, followed by a matchup against TRAC member Rockridge at 1:30PM.
