Boys fall 43-63 to Saginaw Arthur Hill High School
The DHS boys varsity basketball team dropped its second consecutive game last night, dropping to 10-7 on the season after a 43-63 loss to the Lumberjacks of Saginaw Arthur Hill. DHS only trailed by two points in the fourth quarter, but fell apart late and finished the game with a 20 point loss. Junior Mike Robb led Dow with 15 points and 10 boards and senior Campbell Bortel added 10. Leading the Lumberjacks was senior Eric Davis with 24 points and Brian Bowen added 19. Dow hosts Mt. Pleasant this Friday.
“It was a tough game against a really good team,” Robb said. “Positives can be taken away because we did play close for most of the game but we aren’t there yet.”
