The Grangeville boys posted a 65-26 win over Pomeroy Tuesday night, Dec. 4.
Boys head coach Kelcey Edwards was pleased with his team’s play.
“These guys were more physical than the other teams we’ve played, and I liked the way the guys responded to that,” he said. “Defensively, I thought we were pretty solid again – not allowing the other team any easy offense and getting some easy offense off it for ourselves. I’d like to see a man-to-man [defense] at some point, but as long as our shooters are going, we’ll play well against zone.”
Trey Dreadfulwater scored 16 points including eight of Grangeville’s first 11 in the contest.
The Pomeroy boys lingered within six, 14-8, but an 8-2 run spurred by a Jacob Vanderwall layup late in the first quarter put GHS comfortably ahead. During the run, Blake Darr converted a couple of quick scores and Aiden Anderson notched a jumper good for a 12-point lead at the first break.
Grangeville’s lead grew to 14 on a putback by Kyle Frei, to 16 on a layup by Dreadfulwater, to 19 on a traditional three-point play by Anderson, and to 22 on a three-pointer by Michael Woods just before halftime. The lead reached 30 during the third quarter on a triple by Darr. The boys game ended quickly under a running clock.
