DAYTON - The Dayton Bulldogs boys basketball team fought to a sweep in the weekend series of two 2B games.

Dayton beat Waitsburg-Prescott, 53-50, Friday night and pummeled Asotin, 57-42, Saturday night.

Against W-P, the Bulldogs had balanced scoring. Dayton had four players in double figures with Kroft Sunderland leading the way with 14 points. Garett Turner pumped in 13, Colton Bickelhaupt had 11 and Hayden Fullerton finished with 10.

"It is always a close game," Dayton coach Roy Ramirez said, "when W-P and Dayton play. It was a defensive battle this time, a rivalry game and extremely hard fought with it being close at the end."

Dayton was ahead 33-26 at half and 41-33 going into the final quarter. W-P fought back, outscoring Dayton 15-11 in final stanza, to still lose by just three points.

W-P hit nine 3-pointers in the game and Dayton just three.

"We would pull ahead a little bit," Ramirez said, "and then W-P would hit a couple 3-pointers to come back. It really was close throughout."

In the game versus Asotin, Dayton enjoyed a comfortable lead for the majority of the game.

It was 32-24 at half and then a 14-point lead for the Bulldogs going into the fourth.

Dayton would win by 15 points and were lead by Turner's 26 pints. Fullerton would add 13.

The Bulldogs are now 6-0 and 2-0 in league. They play again in a four-team Christmas tournament at home, December 29-30th.
