Senior night.

The Sundance boys basketball team hosted the Moorcroft Wolves on Friday night as lone senior Tanner Hofland took the floor for his final home game as a Bulldog. Jumping out to a demanding lead, the Bulldogs were up 26-6 by halftime.

It was an all-around team effort as the entire bench got to see some time on the floor. With ten Bulldogs contributing to the scoring effort, Craig Chandler and Landon Martin led the charge putting 7 points in the book each. The Bulldogs were also able to control the boards with 23 total rebounds as a team.

The second half saw much of the same as the first, with the Bulldogs in control of the tempo as well as the score. Running away with 23 steals on the night, Sundance was easily able to add another win to their record with a final score of 44-18.

Travelling to Hulett on Saturday, the Bulldogs were looking to take the tempo from Friday into their next game. Scoring just 15 points in the first half, the Sundance boys struggled to stay close to Hulett.

With a much needed break, the Bulldogs entered half time down by 9 and searching for answers. Whatever was discussed during the intermission seemed to take effect in the third quarter.

Outscoring the Devils 20-7, the Bulldogs came out with vengeance. The fourth quarter saw the Devils struggling to shut down the Bulldogs from beyond the arc. Lane Gill knocked down three 3's as Landon Martin and Kye Taylor were also able to knock down a trey leading the Bulldogs to a 56-45 victory.
