Mustangs Run Away From Tigers in Border Clash

A potent scoring attack for Davis County proved too much down the stretch for Scotland County in a rare trip across the border. The Tigers lost to the Mustangs 80-58 on Thursday night in Bloomfield, IA.

They came much closer than the final tally might indicate. SCR-I trailed 15-12 after the first period and maintained that three-point margin at the intermission, heading into half time down just 34-31.

Brandon Garnett helped keep the Tigers close, scoring all 10 of his points Thursday night in the first half. The Tigers got three pointers from Kasey Dial, Dakota Wells and Drew Miller and Harley Stone pitched in with six first half points as SCR-I kept the contest close.

But Davis County exploded for 46 points in the second half, 21 points of which came in the third period to extend its cushion to 55-43.

Dial hit a trio of shots from behind the arc in the second half but it wasn’t enough to slow down Davis County. Kyle Shelley was the only other player with more than one field goal in the second half as SCR-I was unable to keep up with the high-scoring Mustangs stampede.

The loss dropped Scotland County to 9-10 on the year. Dial finished with 13 points to pace the Tigers. Garnett added 10 points and Stone finished with eight.

Davis County (17-3) was led in scoring by Colten Matthews with 16 points. Tucker Henderson added 15 points and Austin Utt had 14 points.
