Dayton boys push Hug

Staff Reports

The Dayton boys basketball team gave Northern 4A power Hug all it could handle before the Hawks pulled away at the end for a 71-50 win on Thursday at the Tournament in Winnemucca.

The Northern 3A school trailed by as many as 20 points, but was able to cut the deficit to six points with three minutes left in the game before Hug’s pressure and depth allowed it to pull away.

“I was very happy with the way our team played,” Dayton coach Rob Streeter said. “I thought they played extremely hard.

“They just kind of wore us down. I’m extremely proud of the way our kids battled all the way through.”

Danny Hopper scored 16 points for Dayton, who continues play in the tournament at 6 p.m. today against Rite of Passage.


Amanda Sbragia scored 13 points as Dayton won at the North Valleys Tournament. Rebecca Monzello added nine points, Lauren Clark scored seven points, Sabrina Cantrell had six points, Rebecca Clark and Melony Cox each had two points and Bailey Garcia added one point for the Dust Devils.


Galena was able to win in the West Coast Showcase without its leading scorer, Caitlin Anderson, who sat out with a slight concussion. Anderson is expected to return today when the Grizzlies play at 6 p.m. at Reno High against Bellevue East of Nebraska.

The Grizzlies led 17-12 at halftime and 31-28 after three quarters before pulling away by outscoring Presentation 17-12 in the final period. Caitlin Croft scored 16 points and Dominic Pavich added 13 points for Galena.
