SPOKANE VALLEY It took a very strong team to do it, but someone finally handed the Bulldog boys a loss at the Eagle Holiday Classic, as Colfax owned the second half in a 57-41 win over Sandpoint on the third and final day of action Friday at West Valley High School.
Robbie Johnson and Alex Stockton combined for 22 points, and the Bulldogs (6-3) started fast for the first time in the tourney and led by two after one quarter, but simply ran out of gas in the second half as Colfax (8-2) put the game away with a 30-18 edge.
The Bulldogs are at West Valley on Saturday, Jan. 6.
