The explosive offense of Eastside faced the Boyd Christian Broncos in elementary basketball action Monday night.
Eastside jumped out in front and never looked back, defeating the Broncos, 55-13.
Logan Young led all scoring for Eastside with 18 points, while Andrew Fults had 11.
Playing on their home floor, the Bulldog defense showed up hungry and their defense in the first quarter devoured the Broncos, 18-1. Boyd failed to get back in a hurry against Eastside’s guards, who shoot from long range and drive the lane.
Boyd was on its heels and chasing the Bulldogs from end to end, and pretty much everywhere in between. Brayden Scott would get Boyd’s only basket from a free-throw in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, it was pretty much more of the same -- a relentless Eastside defense that seemed to cover the entire floor.
The Bulldogs cover the floor very well and have the ability to anticipate the pass and quickly intercept the ball from every angle. Young really heated up in the second, scoring 12 points.
The Broncos would find their way through traffic, dodging Bulldogs from every angle and still were not able to find a rhythm or range. The lead for Eastside had ballooned to 40-4.
It would take way more to come back than Boyd would bring but the Broncos continued to fight for loose balls and constantly tried to break through the tough defense applied by the Bulldogs. And although the bench was in for Eastside and their scoring had slowed drastically, the defense kept up the pressure.
Boyd was able to find points again, this time it was from Bronco Cain Buckner with two, to keep the spirits up for Boyd. Charlie Moore added four points for Eastside in the third.
The game was over by the fourth quarter, allowing Eastside to chalk up another one in the win column by defeating Boyd, 55-13.
