Both teams were evenly matched in the first quarter with the Bulldogs ahead 10-9. The pace quickly changed in the second quarter as the Bulldogs gained a 12 point lead to put the score at 29-17 going into the half.

The Blue Devils were not able to keep up with the Bulldogs in the second half of the game as the lead increased to 48-21.

The Bulldogs were explosive in both the second and third quarter as they scored 19 points in each.

The momentum faded in the fourth quarter as they only scored seven points, but they managed to hold the Blue Devils to three points.

“We were able to force their young team into several turnovers and we rebounded. Lagerstrom and Kuhn shot well from perimeter which opened up other scoring opportunities for us and I thought we played some very good aggressive defense. We played sloppy at times also which we need to clean up, but it was nice to get that first win of the year,” explained coach Jay Lagerstrom.

Lagerstrom was on fire as he led the game in points with a total of 21. He had five deuces, three triples and was two for four at the line.

Williams also played a good game at the net by getting his hands on rebounds. He scored 12 points for the team with four deuces and was four for six at the line.
