Cheyenne Central Indians

CHEYENNE – Sophomore Nathanial Talich scored a game-high 22 points to help Cheyenne Central to a 71-56 victory over Natrona County on Thursday night.

“It was a little bit sloppy from having been off for 18 days, but I thought our kids played really good defensively in the first half," Central coach Tagg Lain said. "About as good as you could ask, actually. In the second half, (Natrona) had to go small on us and they were able to create some better offense.

"Our guys really answered offensively. It was a pretty good battle.”

Junior Lawson Lovering added 11 for Central, while Randall LeBeaumont chipped in with 10.

The Indians host Evanston at 8 p.m. tonight.
