An early 7 point advantage wasn't enough, with Garden Plain coming back to top Belle Plaine 62-56 Friday night.
The Dragons were on fire from deep to start, canning four early triples as they took a quick 16-9 advantage.
But the Owls used their size to chip away at the lead, cutting it to a three point game at break, and eventually pulling away for the 62-56 win.
The Owls move to 6-1 on the season with the win, hosting Cheney on Tuesday. Belle Plaine will look to bounce back after dropping their second game of the year with a home tilt against Conway Springs.
