It was a tough week­end for the DVSS Ju­nior High boy’s bas­ket­ball team as they fell in all three games at their home tour­na­ment.

The Dynos in­vited some tough com­pe­ti­tion to their home tour­na­ment Fri­day and Satur­day.

On Fri­day af­ter­noon, they played lo­cal ri­val Prairie Chris­tian Academy. The teams had met on pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sions, with the Dynos get­ting the up­per hand. This time Prairie ran away with a 41-26 win.

The Dynos next faced Dr. Eliot from Lin­den. Coach Eric Neu­man said the Black­hawks are one of the top teams and while they won 22-13, Neu­man said this was one of the best de­fen­sive ef­forts he has seen from his team.

In the fi­nal game, they played Run­dle Col­lege, but lost.

“Run­dle is a very good team,” said Neu­man. “It was sim­i­lar to the Lin­den game, while we lost, we held their top scorer to eight points. Our posts showed up and played a strong de­fen­sive game, but they couldn’t shut Run­dle down en­tirely.”

Coach Neu­man is happy with the team’s per­for­mance.

We had a tough week­end but, for a team that has not re­ally ever played to­gether are start­ing to fig­ure each oth­ers strengths out,” he said. “We have been pick­ing up some steam in the new year they are start­ing to work well to­gether. This Thurs­day the Dynos host Three Hills.

The Dynos played well but fell to de­feat in all three games at their home tour­na­ment.
