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.

Sandpoint 9 6 9 23 — 47

Deer Park 11 11 7 11 — 40

SANDPOINT — Vernon 8, Dalthorp 4, Niemela 0, Davis 10, Treadaway 0, Jones 0, Johnson 15, Vandenberg 0, Pettit 0, Stockton 10.
