Big fourth quarter propels sizzling Bulldog boys to win

Print Article

(Photo by ERIC PLUMMER) Senior Robbie Johnson, pictured dropping a jimmy hook in the lane earlier in the season, scored a game-high 15 in a win over Deer Park Thursday.

SPOKANE VALLEY Sandpoint exploded for 23 fourth quarter points, more than doubling up Deer Park, and the streaking Bulldog boys won their fourth straight game after downing Deer Park 47-40 on day two of the Eagle Holiday Classic at West Valley High School.

The red-hot Bulldogs (6-2) trailed 22-15 at the half, but were undaunted, turning the tide with a rock solid defensive effort in the second half. A 23-11 edge in the fourth quarter, and a team-high 15 points from Robbie Johnson, helped the Bulldogs continue one of their best starts in recent history.

Brothers T.J. Davis and Alex Stockton combined for 20 big points in a hard fought, defensive slugfest, and sophomore guard Cade Vernon added eight important points for the balanced Bulldogs.

Isaac Berglund led a strong Deer Park (4-3) squad with 17 points.

Sandpoint wraps up the tourney against Colfax today at 3:30 p.m.
