It was a showdown between two Washington County teams Friday evening, as the Dewey Bulldoggers played host to the Caney Valley Trojans. Dewey competed throughout, but it was the Trojans who spoiled the Doggers homecoming Friday evening, getting a 46-36 victory.
Both teams struggled to get things going offensively in the early going, as the game was tied at 14 with 2:30 left in the first half. A 9-0 run to close the second quarter helped the Trojans get some comfort heading into halftime. This Bryce Kramer three-pointer was a part of that run.
Caney Valley’s lead was extended to as much as 14 in the third quarter before Dewey climbed back into it. The Doggers would get no closer than six in the closing minutes, though.
Daniel Barham finished with 18 points, while Kramer added 13 for Caney Valley. Dewey’s Jake LaSpisa had 13 points and Jacob Mouser added 11.
Dewey travels to Sperry later tonight, while Caney Valley plays Wyandotte and Fairland next week. Those games were scheduled after the Caney Valley Tournament got canceled.
