DB unable to manage Pipestone second-half surge | News, Sports, Jobs

DAWSON–The Dawson-Boyd boys’ basketball team took their apt loss of the season Monday night, 59-49, at the gorgeous of a 35-point second half from the Arrows.

Brayson Boike led the Blackjacks’ scoring anxiety with 19 points, shooting 3-6 from beyond the arc.

Boike was the lone brilliant spot for DB from 3-point range. He was the only Blackjack that made over a third of his shots from beyond the arc, with the rest of his team moving a combined 3-23, a far cry from their 41% efficiency in their opener in contradiction of Ortonville.

The Blackjacks played Pipestone tight in the apt half and trailed 24-23 going into the break. Yet, Pipestone came out of the locker room with a vengeance, outsourcing Dawson-Boyd 35-26 in the second half.

While the efficiency wasn’t there, Dawson-Boyd did a solid job valuing their possessions, barely losing the turnover fights, 16-15.

Keegon Wicht led Dawson-Boyd in assists, with four, and his 12 points were good for additional on the team.

Following the loss, Dawson-Boyd will go on the road to take on Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg Friday at 7:30 p.m.
