he Dorchester Longhorns 57-16 in boys basketball Friday, Dec. 10 at Bruning. The Eagles shot 54 percent from the field in the contest.

BDS, led by Kendrick Holeman and Derek Swartzendruber, exploded out the gate scoring 43 points in the first half. Each scored 13 points to pace the Eagles to a 43-12 halftime lead.

“Both of them did a nice job of shooting the ball when they found an opening,” said BDS Coach Fred Kluck. “Ryan Tegtmeier, who led his team with eight assists, made sure they had the ball when they broke open.”

The Eagles jumped ahead 18-7 after the opening period, led 43-12 at halftime, and then held a lead of 47-12 going into the fourth quarter.

Both sides were plagued by turnovers, with the Eagles turning it over 19 times, and the Longhorns committing 23 turnovers.

“We played a pretty sound first half and then kind of dropped off a little in the second half,” said Coach Kluck. “Defensively we played pretty well but offensively we lost a little focus.”

BDS connected on 6 of 14 three-point tries and sank 9 of 17 free throw attempts. The Eagles connected on 15 of 28 field goals, while 0-3 Dorchester was 4 of 18 from the field. Dorchester made 1 of 8 three-point tries and made 5 of 9 from the line.

“Tyler Lauenstein did a nice job scoring a season high seven points and pulling down five rebounds,” Coach Kluck said. “When we weren’t scoring in the second half, he hit the offensive boards hard and gave us some extra opportunities. Michael Houchin had a nice game on the defensive end leading us with five steals.”

The BDS Eagles crushed the Lawrence-Nelson Raiders 71-40 in boys basketball Saturday, Dec. 11 at Davenport after a fourth-quarter scoring parade blew the contest wide open.

The Eagles' Ryan Tegtmeier helped carry his team to a 31 point victory scoring a team- high 16 points with nine rebounds and seven assists.

“When we struggled a little bit defensively in the second quarter, Ryan really recognized some opportunities and scored 10 of his 16 points in about a five minute span,” said BDS Coach Fred Kluck.

The Eagles took the lead 17-12 after the first quarter, and margins of 13-7 and 14-13 in the second and third quarters boosted the lead to 44-32 going into the final period.

The Eagles heated things up from three-point range, hitting 7 of 14 from long distance.

“Offensively, we played pretty well,” said Coach Kluck. “Defensively, we were a little hot and cold. We’d play well a couple of possessions and then seemed to take a couple off.”

BDS improved its season mark to 4-1, while Lawrence-Nelson fell to 1-2.

BDS sank 10 of 17 free throw attempts. The Eagles sank 25 of 40 from the field, while Lawrence-Nelson was 13 of 25 from the field. The Raiders sank 2 of 4 from the line.

“Luke Christensen did a nice job on both ends of the court for us,” Coach Kluck said. “He had a season-high of 11 points and drew the tough assignment of trying to slow down L/N’s quick point guard. Tanner Ahrens stepped up big inside for us knocking down three big baskets in the second half on nice post moves.”
