DHS Boys Advance At CRC, Ladies Bow Out Early
The Dorchester boys basketball team (7-7) won in the first round of the Crossroads Conference Tournament last night, but it was took overtime to do so.
The Longhorns prevailed 56-53 over 11th-seed Meridian after the extra period of play. The DHS boys relinquished a 33-19 lead at halftime, managing to score only 17 point in the second half.
The Longhorns were lead by Corey Bird, who tossed in 20. Other scorers in double figures were Anthony Cordona with 16 and Leo Conte with 10. Tim Havlat had 8 points and Nixon Nerud scored 2.
The Longhorns will need to take their game up a notch Tuesday night in round No. 2 of the CRC, since they will face Exeter-Milligan, the No. 3 seed and the state's No. 4 rated team in Class D-2.
Meanwhile, the DHS Lady Lonhorns (1-14) bowed out early from CRC play, with a 53-33 loss to Osceola. Scoring for Dorchester were the following players: Plonkey 2, Weber 8, Velder 4, Bird 14, Wells 5.
