The younger Bulldogs finished their year with a home game against Steamboat Springs, taking a 55-30 victory, the fourth win over the Sailors this season.
The rival schools kept it close to start, the Dogs maintaining a 23-19 lead at halftime, but the Bulldog hoopsters upped their game for the remaining half, capitalizing on steals, working the ball around and keeping the effort high in what was the final game for many on their roster.
“It always feels good to dominate at home,” said freshman Brad Cook. “It’s been a good season.”
Torin Reed led scoring for the Bulldogs, with four three-pointers adding to 14 total points. Dalton Greenwood followed with 10, Leon Sanderson eight, Chace Marshall seven, Wyatt Nielsen six, Adain Wilmot five, Cook four and MJ Smith one.
C-Team coach Forrest Watson said he sees plenty of potential in the bunch as they continue with high school ball, evidenced by the second half boost following some lackluster play at first.
“It was a completely different team out there,” he said. “They were making plays, causing turnovers. They have the basketball knowledge, they just need to incorporate the hustle, the energy, the effort that they have.”
MCHS girls C-Team was unable to play Friday but will finish out their season Tuesday in Oak Creek.
Some players will continue this winter as part of the junior varsity squad, which, along with varsity, still has five games remaining.
“JV-wise I think we can win every game from here on out,” Marshall said confidently.
