The question may not be if the Eastside 7-8 grade boys basketball can win every game this season. It may be by how much the Bulldogs are victorious by on a nightly basis.After winning the preseason Morrison Ruritan tournament and Woodbury Classic, the Eastside Bulldogs have started the elementary regular season with two blowout victories.The Bulldogs improved to 2-0 Monday night with a 67-44 victory over the Dibrell Wildcats, which followed a 29-point win over Boyd on opening night Nov. 29.Beating the Bulldogs won’t be easy for any other elementary team, especially when Eastside controls the glass with its twin towers.Tyler Beaty and Hunter Hawkins destroyed Dibrell on the backboards to power the Bulldogs to victory over their biggest rivals.Beaty scored 16 points, most coming on tip-ins after misses, while Hawkins led Eastside with 18 points against the Wildcats.Beaty got the scoring started Monday with a run-out layup caused by Eastside’s stout 1-3-1 defense. The basket ignited a 17-2 run for the Bulldogs, with Beaty scoring six during the span.
