T.J. Schultz The Bulldogs lost 87-60 to the host Lakers in the opening round of the Minnewaska holiday tournament on Friday night.

The game was supposed to be held on Thursday but was postponed due to the harsh winter weather conditions.

The Bulldogs got behind early (17-10 after the first quarter) but started to climb back at the end of the first quarter and beginning of the second. Still a rally by the Lakers sent the Dogs in at halftime down by 13 points.

The Lakers took a commanding lead in the third and fourth quarters to win 87-60.

J.T. Koehn led the Bulldogs with 16 points and was complemented nicely by fellow senior post T.J. Schultz (Schultz scoreing two of his 13 points), who had 13.

The coaching staff decided to move Adam Kampsen straight from the ninth grade team up to the varsity squad. In his first game, Kampsen played very solid minutes, scoring seven points and not missing a shot. Look for him to be a dominating force in the near future.

The second round games for the tournament were held on Tuesday, Jan. 2. Minnewaska played Lakeview for the championship, and Paynesville played Perham for third place.

The Bulldogs also will play at Litchfield against the Dragons in their third conference game on Thursday. Come and cheer on the Bulldogs.

Paynesville--10 16 15 19 - 60
Minnewaska--17 22 21 27 - 87

Scoring: Logan Louis 4; T.J. Schultz 13; Wes Lieser 6 ; Davis Hoekstra 5; Aaron Lang 8; Adam Kampsen 7; Scott Buermann 1; J.T. Koehn 16.
