Junior Boys Dynos strong in tournament defeat
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.
