For Forestburg High School head boys’ basketball coach Steve Sandusky, he was happy to escape Prairie Valley with a District 1A-21 victory.
“You could tell Prairie Valley had been practicing a lot,” Sandusky said. “They shot the ball well, and I think they could be contenders if they stay together.”
Meanwhile, Prairie Valley head coach Zac Tabor savored his first taste of piloting the Bulldogs in the setting of district play.
“It was an intense game,” Tabor said. “It was a lot slower pace than I would have liked it to be. It was a grind-it-out kind of game. They are so long, athletic and tough inside.”
In the end, Forestburg claimed a 54-45 victory over Prairie Valley.
The Longhorns and Bulldogs played diametric opposites in this game. Forestburg finished with a 19-6 edge in free-throw attempts. Meanwhile, Prairie Valley connected on seven 3-pointers.
Forestburg and Prairie Valley were deadlocked at 35-all heading into the fourth quarter, when the Longhorns outscored the Bulldogs 19-10.
Perimeter shots that had fallen for Prairie Valley through the first three periods didn’t in the fourth, and Forestburg drew fouls for trips to the free-throw stripe. Read more, and see the complete box score, in the Dec. 24 Bowie News.
