Bulldogs post easy win over visiting South Dearborn Knights

On paper, it was another game the Batesville Bulldogs were expected to win.

But the game is played out on the floor.

The South Dearborn Knights visited Batesville High School last week coming off a big win against East Central.

The Bulldogs did not let South's momentum last for long.

Coach Aaron Garrett's crew posted a 76-26 victory over the Knights.

Bryan Hoeing gave the Bulldogs a spark early with seven of the team's first nine points. Blake Walsman squeezed a basket in between.

A free throw by South Dearborn's Blake Kirkey was the team's only point of the first quarter as the Bulldogs jumped out to a 23-1 advantage.

The margin grew to 35-3 before the Knights hit their first field goal of the game at the 1:16 mark in the second quarter.

The Bulldogs went on to lead 37-8 at halftime.

Hoeing, Walsman, Wes McKinney and Nathan Longstreth accounted for the team's first eight points of the third quarter as the lead reached 45-8.

The Knights did begin to find some rhythm late in the third quarter. Still, the Batesville lead continued to grow and the quarter ended 63-18.

The Bulldogs had three players score in double figures. Hoeing led the way with 19 points followed by Walsman with 12. Garrett Burkhart scored 10 points off the bench in two quarters of play.

Jeff Wolfram led the Knights in scoring with 14 points.

BHS junior varsity wins

The Batesville junior varsity got off to a slow start defensively, but still managed to score 63 points and post a 28 point victory.

The Bulldogs led 12-10 at the end of the first quarter and pushed the margin to 41-22 by halftime.

Batesville then held the Knights to only two points in the third quarter as the lead jumped to 55-24.

Jacob Vogelsang turned a good night offensively to set the pace with 17 points. Burkhart finished with 13 points followed by Evan Blanken with 10.
