Dukes take down the Buffalos in final home game


SWT Sports Editor

Slowly but surely the Dublin MIddle School boys basketball team continues to improve, and Wednesday they battled their way to a 40-26 win over Floyd Middle School.


Floyd actually took the early 7-6 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Dukes outscored them 9-8 in the second quarter to tie things up at 15-15 at the halftime break.

The Dukes put the pressure on in the third quarter, scoring 12 points while holding Floyd to just 4 points.  The fourth quarter saw more of the same, with Dublin outscoring Floyd 13-7 to close things out and earn the 40-26 win.

Another good aspect of the Dukes win is the number of players scoring in the contest.  Seven different players scored for Dublin, led by Cole Duncan with 8 points.  Jaden Frazier, Jaceri Eaves, Conner Martin, Kellen Dalton, and Braeden Blevins all scored  6 points each.  Jason Smith rounded out the Dublin scoring with 2 points.

Cole Sutphin led the way for Floyd with a game and team high 13 points.

The Dukes will now regroup and get ready for a road trip to Pulaski Middle School on Thursday, Jan. 16.  They’ll follow that game up with their final game of the season, a road trip to Carroll County.
