5A No. 1 Andover boys 65, Goddard 44

GODDARD—The No. 1 team in Class 5A looked every bit the part in their 65-44 win over the Goddard Lions on Monday night. 

Eli Shetlar, the sensational sophomore once again shined for Andover as he drained three 3s in route to scoring 18 points to lead all scorers. 

Andover (6-0) built a quick 19-4 lead before the Lions even had a real chance to get back in the game. They did it by pounding in side early and then hit them without the outside shot as Jack Johson and Jalen Beadles also added in a first quarter three to go with Shetlar to jump out quickly.

Andover led 40-17 at the break. 

Matt Rudy had 10 points and senior Jordan Laub added in seven points. 

The Trojans now have won 29 consecutive games and have not lost since 2019, and it will be almost two full years since they last suffered a defeat. 

Goddard drops to 0-6 on the season and now have lost 23 consecutive games.
