Moving to 19-4 on their season, the Waldron Jr High Bulldogs have spent the entire basketball season pushing themselves mentally and physically and boy has it paid off. Helping to upgrade their record was the extreme battle the Bulldogs partook in against rivals the Mansfield Jr High Tigers on Monday night. After a fairly close first three quarters, Waldron was done messing around. In one final push, the Bulldogs pulled away and left the Tigers in their rearview mirror taking the game 50-34.
The high powered star of Monday nights game was freshman guard, Lidge Stinson, who brought in 20 points on the game. Stinson was followed by Trenton Hunt who secured 14 points, Petey Justice and Payton Lipham who each grabbed six, and with two points apiece was Trevor Hunt, Chris Lopez, and Kason Davis whose points came from two big free throws to seal the win.
The Bulldogs concluded their runnin’ and gunnin’ game with 12 steals and 12 rebounds. Justice basked in rebound glory with four trailed by Davis with three. Trenton Hunt was quick to snatch the netty shots as he earned four steals followed by Stinson and Justice with two.
The Jr High Bulldogs will head to Cedarville on Thursday, January 30 to go head to head with the Pirates starting at 4 p.m.
