The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch basketball team raised their District 9 League record to 2-0 with a 50-39 victory over the Bradford Owls last night at the SMAHS Dutch Oven.
The Dutch built a 40-26 lead after three quarters, only to see the Owls outscore the Dutch 13-2 in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter to cut the St. Marys lead to 42-39 with 2:11 left. However, Bradford failed to score the remainder of the game.
â€śBasketball is a game of ebb and flow, and we played well in the third quarter and they (Bradford) did well in the fourth,â€ť said St. Marys coach Mark Guido.
