Senior Kyson Stilson scored a game-high 18 points as the Emery Spartans easily defeated the Maeser Prep Lions 83-38 Wednesday night in Lindon.

Competing in their first road contest of the year, the Spartans outscored Maeser Prep 24-5 in the opening quarter. The offense continued to fire on all cylinders, gathering a 51-20 lead by the end of the first half.
