Bulldogs fall to Eagles

NEWTON — The Eagles had no trouble on offense against St. Anthony Friday night, winning 74-43 and pushing their record to 12-0 on the season.

Dylan Davidson and Keith Butler each had 16 points for Newton, making a formidable inside-out connection against the St. Anthony defense.

Newton used its deep roster to push the tempo early, and while St. Anthony hung around for a quarter and a half, the Eagles pulled away.

“We came in knowing we were deeper than them,” said Newton coach Doug Mammoser. “Our guards play pretty well when they can get up and down.”

Things picked up early in the first quarter when Davidson hit three straight threes to put Newton up 13-4. The Bulldogs hung around, keeping it at 28-20 with about five minutes left, but Newton scored 12 of the next 17 points and grabbed a 40-25 lead at the half.

“We were hanging around; they’ve got a good team,” said St. Anthony coach Mark Tovey. “We don’t guard well enough to handle a team like that right now.”

Tovey said the Eagles shot 59 percent from the field Friday night.

Any hopes of a second-half surge were quickly extinguished, as Newton rattled off an 8-0 out of the gate to take a 23-point lead.

The deficit stayed around there for much of the game and both coaches emptied their benches midway through the fourth quarter.

Davidson, Dylan Johnson and Corey Davidson stepped up shooting the ball from the perimeter, while Luke Stone and Butler handled things on the inside.

Mammoser was happy with their shooting.

“We haven’t shot like that since (Elijah) Knepper went out (with an injury),” Mammoser said. “He was our three-point shooter.”

Stone had 13 points, Johnson added 12 points and Corey Davidson had eight, rounding out a balanced Newton attack.

Jacob Schuette led the Bulldogs with 16 points, Jason Vogel had eight points and John Goeckner and Neil Williams had six points each.

    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.
