Scottie Boys Split Games Against Glendive, Poplar

Luke Breigenzer is contested on a layup attempt during the Scotties' Jan. 26 game against the Dawson County Red Devils.

The Scottie boys lost one and won one on the road last week as they first traveled to Glendive Jan. 26, then to Poplar on Jan. 28.

Following a candid editorial from DCHS boys basketball coach Wade Murphy that was published in the Glendive Ranger Review Jan. 21, it would seem the Red Devils might've had something to prove.

Prove it, they did, eking out the win over the Scotties, 29-28.

Neither team displayed outstanding offensive performances in the low-scoring contest. Instead, the quarter-by-quarter score fluctuated inexplicably. The Scotties put up 12 points in the second quarter, only to score just two points in the entire third quarter.

In comparison, the Red Devils went from scoring just four points in the second quarter to their game-high 13 points in the final eight minutes.

Neither team had a player break into the double digits for scoring. Glasgow's Cade Myrick led with nine points, while for the Red Devils, top-scoring credit was shared by Stephen Steinbron and Ephrain Yohan who both finished with eight points.

Glasgow 3  12  2  11-28 

Glendive 6  4  6  13-29 

Glasgow: Trent Herbert 5, Tyler Hersom 3, Bryce Legare 6, Luke Breigenzer 1, Cade Myrick 9, Brayden Ross 4.

Glendive: Stephen Steinbron 8, Ephrain Yohan 8, Baxter Baker 3, Robby Keiser 4, Lane Walker 4, Jory Opp 2.

Glasgow traveled east to Poplar for its second game of the week on Saturday and earned the win. The top scorer for the Scotties was Brayden Ross with 18 points, followed by Myrick with 15 and Trent Herbert with 14. Tyler Hersom capped off the score by contributing five points. Ross also clinched the double double as he grabbed 10 rebounds off the boards during the game.

The contest was physical and chippy almost from the start, and by the end of the game, the Indians' frustration was evident. Demonstrating their displeasure over the outcome of the game, the hometown crowd booed the officials as they left the hardwood.

Poplar 11  12 12  15 -50 

Glasgow 15  11  7  19 -52 

Poplar: Kenny Smoker 19, Wynn Main 2, Damon Sadler 16, Coy Atkinson 8, Darryl Joe 3, Dion Hopkins 2. 

Glasgow: Tyler Hersom 5, Trent Herbert 14, Cade Myrick 15, Brayden Ross 18.

The Scotties will face Harlem at home on Thursday, Feb. 2 and will travel to Scobey to take on the Spartans in a non-conference game on Saturday, Feb. 4. Thursday will be the Scotties' last home game before districts, which means it will be senior night. Four senior boys will be recognized following their game against the Wildcats: Luke Breigenzer, Brayden Ross, Trent Herbert and Tyler Hersom.
