LINN – The Linn Bulldogs kept their season perfect with a 69-50 league win over Clifton-Clyde at Linn on Tuesday. The Linn boys came out with a 13-6 first quarter and extended the lead every quarter, going on scoring streaks that left the Eagles on their heels. The Bulldogs have a methodical style of play that can slow down the game play significantly during the game, but they are also able to score quickly with fast breaks and a cooperative passing game.

Tigers can’t stay with B&B, lose 38-51

BAILEYVILLE – A big third quarter by the B&B Falcons put the game out of reach for the Washington County boys on Friday at Baileyville. The Tigers were only down by eight points at halftime, but B&B used a 17-9 third quarter to extend their lead and ended up handing a league loss to the Tigers, 51-38. “We really played a pretty decent game against B&B, but shooting woes that pretty much lasted the entire game put us in an early hole, and wouldn’t allow us to climb out of that hole that we had dug ourselves into,” said WCHS Head Coach Lyle Thompson.

Washington County High School head boys basketball coach Lyle Thompson takes the reins of a Tiger program this year that returns a lot of varsity experience and a lot of depth on a large team. Just two seniors graduated from last year’s squad and this year’s team has just one senior, so Thompson will be looking to a younger squad to step up their game. There are three starters and seven letter winners returning, which will help jump start Thompson’s tenure after 17 years of head coaching experience. “We are not tall, but we have speed and athleticism on our roster,” said Thompson, who said he plans an up tempo style of play for the Tigers. “We must defend and rebound in order to be able to use our speed on offense. We must take care of the ball on offense as well.”.

The Linn High School boys basketball team returns a large senior class with a lot of experience on the court from last year. Head Coach Jeremy Miller is starting his second year with the team and has a lot of height and athletic ability on his roster. He’s hoping that experience and ability will translate into a cleaner game this year. “The team will have to do a better job with minimizing turnovers and controlling the tempo of the game offensively,” said Miller. “These issues will have to be addressed as we prepare for tough league competition.”

B&B beats Hanover in sub-state game

Senior Kent Bruna gets ready to charge through a tackler. Bruna led rushing for Hanover.

By Dan Thalmann.

A halftime score of B&B 22, Hanover 14 showed the close game most everyone was expecting between these two dominate 8-man football rivals at Friday’s sub-state matchup in Hanover. But after a couple early turnovers in the second half, the B&B Falcons, in their final year of play before consolidation, took all the momentum they needed and scored 38 unanswered points in the second half to win 60-14. Hanover junior quarterback Andrew Bruna scored the two touchdowns for the Wildcats, both runs. He was 5/21 passing with 44 yards.
