SPORTS SUNDAY — For boys basketball, revenge is sweet

The YSHS boys basketball team regained some pride on Friday as they cruised to a 64–59 victory over visiting Middletown Christian just two weeks after falling to them in a devastating overtime loss.

Despite a 25-point Bulldog lead and 46-point performance from YSHS forward Roland Newsome, YSHS lost 93–89 in overtime to Middletown Christian on Jan. 13. This time it was all Bulldogs. The home team, in front of a packed house, charged out to a 31–18 halftime lead and never looked back.

The girls varsity basketball team also defeated Middletown Christian this week and handed a loss to Troy Christian for their fourth MBC win in a row. The Bulldogs beat Middletown Christian handily, 50–24, and defeated Troy Christian, 33–29, to improve to 5–3 in the conference, where they hold third place.
