KERKHOVEN - Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg celebrated a banner night for senior Weston Gjerde, but Dawson-Boyd left the gym with the win.

Fueled by a 26-point night from Romell Horton, the Blackjacks won their fifth straight game, including four straight in the Camden Conference, with a 73-61 victory over the Fighting Saints on Tuesday.

Gjerde, who had a KMS-best 16 points, recorded his 1,000th career point. Needing four points to hit the mark, he also had five rebounds and five assists. Teammates Alex Call and Ethan Hauge both had 12 points in the defeat.
