Dawgs play ‘real hard’ at MHS; girls fall

MARYVILLE — Mark Blevins said his Bearden Bulldogs rarely have an easy time trying to win at Maryville.

But showcasing “one of our better performances” according to the BHS head coach, Bearden (15-1 overall, 3-1 in District 4-AAA entering the week) beat the Rebels convincingly, 64-46, Tuesday night, Jan. 4, at MHS.

The win earned BHS a split after its girls team lost (more later in this story).

“We played really, really hard,” Blevins added.

Senior post Will Winton “almost had a perfect night” shooting, Blevins said, leading Bearden in scoring with 16.

Close behind was teammate Ty Greene with 15 followed by Rico White scoring 12 and Drew Standifer eight.

“We played really well, but we got into foul trouble and kinda had to sag off them a little bit in the second half,” Blevins said.

Dion Fair added seven points for BHS while Spencer Peake scored four and Austin Weida two.

Outscored 33-18 in the middle two quarters, Bearden’s girls fell to Maryville 54-40, losing its first 4-AAA game (3-1 entering the week) while falling to 7-6 overall.

Junior point guard Jai-Jai McLaughlin and freshman guard Lexus Norwood scored 11 each for the Lady Bulldogs. Mallory Uekman had seven, followed by Cozette Gaspard with six, Tyler Carter four and Olivia Taylor one.

“It was one of those games where we were ahead most of the first half, then we had about six turnovers in the last three minutes of the first half,” BHS head coach Richard Cowan said of Maryville’s 23-18 halftime lead.
