DAVENPORT – It was a low-scoring night in Davenport Thursday, as Exeter-Milligan and Bruning-Davenport-Shickley squared off in boys and girls basketball.
In the opener, the BDS girls never trailed, as they beat the Timberwolves 37-28, paced by 19 points from junior Regan Alfs. The Eagles held Exeter-Milligan senior star Kate Jansky to 4 first-half points, and 9 for the game. She came into the game averaging 19 points per contest. The win boosted the Eagles record to 11-4, while the Timberwolves fell to 14-2. The teams could meet again next week at the Crossroads Conference tournament in York, where BDS is the top seed, and Exeter-Milligan is seeded second.
The nightcap was an even lower scoring game, as the Exeter-Milligan and BDS boys scored a combined 36 points in four quarters of action. In that tilt, the Timberwolves led the entire game and tallied a 22-14 win. The defenses were strong, with open shots hard to come by on both ends of the court. The open shots that were taken, failed to find the cylinder most of the time. It was just 7-3 Timberwolves after one quarter, and 11-8 at the half. The same lack of scoring continued in the second half, with Exeter-Milligan adding 11 points, and BDS just 6 after intermission. Spencer Pribyl led the 11-3 Timberwolves in scoring with 9 points, while Isaac Kamler and Eric Schroeder had 4 apiece for the Eagles, now 9-5 on the season. Next up for both teams is the Crossroads Conference tournament in York.
