Dayton boys, girls top Silver Stage
SILVER SPRINGS – Dayton High bounced back from a disappointing effort against Yerington and beat Silver Stage 66-58 Thursday night in a Lahontan League game.
Dayton improved to 7-4 overall and 2-1 in league.
Silver Stage played an extended 1-2-2 zone, the same defense that Yerington used to frustrate the Dust Devils on Tuesday. This time Dayton executed a little better.
“We didn’t do a great job, but we did execute better than we did against Yerington,” coach Jason Santos said. “There was a lot of hacking and slapping. I’m glad we got out of there without anybody getting hurt.”
Dylan Taylor led the offense with 19 points and Adan Gomez added 14.
Dayton returns to action Jan. 3 at home against Sparks.

The game was close for a quarter, as Dayton left the floor with a 9-8 lead.
