Bray-Doyle teams get sweep over Paoli

BRAY — The Bray-Doyle boys basketball team finally got the monkey of not having beat a varsity team off its back.

In only the Donkeys second home game this season, they beat Paoli 61-54. With only five kids, the visiting Pugs couldn’t handle the inside presence that the Donkeys thrived on.

“We did some good things,” coach Doug Bond said. “We had some pretty good post players and the post helped us out.”

Seniors Randy Jackson and Rodney Hall led the Donkeys with 21 and 18 points. Hall never quit pressuring the Paoli lineup and it paid dividends on the offensive end.

“He should have had 40, because he’s just a barrel of energy,” Bond said.

A total team effort led the Bray-Doyle girls basketball team to its seventh win of the season, the same as last year’s total.

The final 54-31 score made what was known all game, official. These Donkeys are a force to be reckoned with. It was a great bounce-back win for Bray-Doyle, who lost 33-31 at Central on Saturday. After a long road swing, the team came out fired up at home and put the visiting Pugs behind early.

“You never know how a team is going to respond after a loss, especially, one of those one games that’s real close, and it’s a rivalry game,” Coach Frank Moser said. “I thought we came out really well. We outscored them 11-3 in the first quarter, and that set the tone.”

The Donkeys dominated all but one quarter, the third. The Pugs made a run at making it a game, but the home team closed the doggy door.

“It was close enough for us to be a little concerned,” Moser said. “Then we outscore them 18-9 in the fourth and it was pretty much over then.

“I thought they responded well to the run they made.”

Senior Ashlee Kelly led the Donkeys with 18 points, but junior Taylor Nichols added 14 and Kelly’s cousin, senior Madison had nine. Moser said it wasn’t surprising that Ashlee had as many points that she did, but that it was nice to see her living up to her potential.

“She did it so many times last year I got spoiled and expected it every day,” Moser said. “She shows that she can score points, and I’m glad she’s stepping up.”

Add in the production alongside Ashlee and Moser thinks the team could be very hard to beat. He pointed to Madison’s points as a big bonus.

“If Madison gives us nine points a game, man that’s going to be awesome,” Moser said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
