Davison Uses Big Third Quarter to Pull Away from DHS boys
A competitive match turned lopsided in last night’s game between Davison High School and the Chargers. After taking a four point lead into halftime, DHS was outscored 21-4 in the third quarter and never recovered.
“You take away that third quarter and we probably win the game,” junior Mike Robb said. “We can’t have lapses like that in the future.”
Senior guard Alec Marty’s contributions weren’t enough to help bring the Chargers back in the fourth quarter. Marty scored 26 points, but no other Charger had more than eight. Davison had two scorers with 17 points or above and another added 10. Marty also added three steals and three assists. Robb had nine rebounds.
The team (11-8, 8-6 SVL) has another home game on Feb. 26 against Flint Powers Catholic.
Dow girls dominate Davison
The Dow girls basketball season just keeps getting better and better. The team won again last night, a 52-27 whipping of Davison to push the teams already impressive record to 17-2 (13-1 SVL).
“We’re playing really good basketball right now,” sophomore Kaylee Wasco said. “We need to keep it up and continue to improve as the playoffs get closer and closer.”
Sophomore Ellie Taylor’s 18 points led the way for the Chargers, and Wasco had 13 and nine rebounds. Sophomores Nadia Atton and Asjia Blanton both grabbed eight boards and three assists, while Atton added three steals.
DHS turned a 23-16 halftime lead into a second half blowout after outscoring Davison 29-11 in the second half. The girls take on Flint Powers Catholic on Friday at Bay City Central High School. The game begins at 6 p.m.
