Bulldogs pull away from Raiders

LAPEL — The Lapel Bulldogs hosted Senior Night Thursday night and came away with a 65-41win over their former White River Athletic Conference rival Shenandoah.

The Bulldogs grabbed an early lead and never trailed as they won their sixth game in a row and 12th on the season. “Give a lot of credit to Lapel,” Shenandoah coach Aaron Cain said afterward. “We gave up too many second chance points.”

Lapel seized control early in the second quarter, scoring the first nine points to take a 26-12 lead. With Lapel leading 28-14, Kyle Demick was fouled as he hit a 3-pointer and converted the free throw for a rare four-point play to draw Shenandoah within 10 points. But the Bulldogs outscored Shenandoah 9-2 to lead 37-20 at halftime. Bobby Steele led the Bulldogs in the first half with 12 of his 14 points for the game.

Lapel opened the lead more in the third with steady play and balanced scoring while Shenandoah continued to struggle with missed shots and turnovers. Through the middle two quarters, the Raiders turned the ball over 12 times and went just 6-19 from the field.

“We had too many turnovers. We had two straight games with less than 10,” Cain said. “We need to do a better job of protecting the ball.” The Raiders finished with 18 turnovers. The Bulldogs opened a 29-point lead in the third and led 57-31 going into the fourth.

Prior to the game, Lapel honored seniors Mitchell Richardson, Bailey Partington, Josh Erwin, Bobby Steele and Dalton Busch.

As the fourth quarter wore on, the seniors came out of the game one by one. Richardson was first as his brother JonRoss replaced him with 4:40 to go in the contest. Steele and Partington followed while Busch finished the game after entering in the fourth quarter. Erwin was injured during the tennis season in the fall and has been unable to play this season.
