Bulldogs fall to Spokane, win two at Cabool tourney

The Gainesville Bulldogs traveled to Spokane Friday, Jan. 6. The JV brought home a 54-42 victory, and the varsity, which struggled some on offense, suffered a 57-41 loss.
“We had a rough time scoring the ball,” said coach Matt Powell. “We got good looks, but couldn’t make the shots. I was pleased with our defense until halfway through the third, and then I thought we stopped guarding, but that is also attributed to frustration on offense.”
Jaxon Britt led the scoring with 12 points. Others scoring for Gainesville were Brandon Poe 8, Wyatt Wilson 6, Brodie Chapman 5, Jeff Donley and Kenny Grisham with 4 each and Garrett Morgan with 2.
Garrett led the way to the junior varisty victory with 14 points, followed by Justin Wallace with 11. Others scoring were Jaxon Britt 8, Tanner Jennings 5, Ben Poiner and John Hossman with 4 each, and Jalen Evans, Ryelon Estes and Dalton Howard with 2 each. Cody Donley and Kaleb Hubbard chipped in 1 each.
“After being off for 2 weeks, the boys were ready to get to competing again,” said  JV coach Cody Swearengin.  “We had the lead the whole game, and the boys did a good job at holding the lead when Spokane made their runs.”
The Bulldogs traveled to Sparta Tuesday and will play at Dora Friday. Games start at 6 p.m.
