Crusaders gain revenge against Dogs
St. Cloud Cathedral earned their first conference win by beating the Bulldogs boys' basketball team 70-62 at home on Tuesday, Feb. 3. |
The Crusaders avenged a 57-55 loss to the Bulldogs in Paynesville in December.
The Bulldogs made eight three-pointers - four by senior Doug Mages, who scored a game-high 23 points, and three by senior Adam Kampsen, who added 15 points.
The Dogs led 21-19 after one period, making four treys in the first eight minutes, but Cathedral held the Dogs to eight points in the second quarter, leading 31-29 at the half. They extended that lead to six after three quarters and to eight by the end of the game.
Missing free throws and inconsistent defense were keys to the loss, said Bulldogs head coach Phil Carlson. The Bulldogs shot 50 percent from the free throw line (14 of 28), including only 25 percent in the fourth quarter (3 of 12) while the Crusaders shot 70 percent (14 of 20) from the charity stripe.
The Bulldogs are now 3-4 in the West Central Conference North and 6-9 overall. They have lost five straight games.
This week, the Dogs hosted Rockford on Tuesday, Feb. 10. They will play at Albany on Thursday, Feb. 12.
