PJHS beats DMS, wins county
Priceville used an extended second half run to take control of the game and defeat Danville 34-24 to win the Morgan County Jr. High Boys Tournament at Brewer High School Saturday night.
The key moment occurred in the third quarter when Danville’s Andreas Cordova picked up his fourth foul. When he went to the bench, Danville led 15-14.
That’s when the Bulldogs took over the game. Brandon Dinh made a pair of 3-pointers to give PJHS a 21-17 lead at the end of the third quarter.
That 9-2 run would prove to be too much as Priceville pulled away down the stretch with a few more clutch shots.
Kyle Haynes led the Bulldogs with 10 points followed by Dinh with 9, Kaleb Barker with 7, Jarrod McKelvy with 3, Dylan Cross with 2, Marc McClendon with 2 and John Williams with 1.
Danville was led by Isaiah Moore with 8 followed by Andreas Cordova with 4, Eric Orr with 4, Drew Fitzgerald with 3, Alan Cordova with 3 and Wade Vest with 2.
