Third place in the Warren County Elementary boys league was up for grabs Thursday night when the Eastside Bulldogs visited the Morrison Eagles.
An inspired effort from point guard Ethan Smith led the Eagles to a 33-23 victory over the Bulldogs.
Smith scored 11 points, including three points in the pivotal fourth quarter which saw Morrison turn a two-point game into a 10-point victory.
Smith led Morrison in scoring, but his main objective on Thursday night was trying to slow down Eastside guard Jesse Jones.
Jones came into the game with three double-digit scoring nights and Morrison’s coach elected to play a box-and-one where Smith stayed man-to-man on Jones the entire game.
The plan worked in the first half as Smith held Jones to six points, half coming on a second-quarter 3-pointer, while scoring six of his own.
Caleb Newby’s two baskets in the second quarter helped Morrison take a slim 13-12 lead into the locker room.
Neither team found its footing offensively in the third quarter. The two teams combined for seven points, with Smith’s layup and two free throws from Layne Murphy giving Morrison a 17-15 edge entering the fourth.
In the final period, Morrison exploded on offense. Brayton Kelsey hit two shots, Newby nailed two more and Rylan Sliger and Devin Martin each connected on one shot apiece.
Eastside tried to keep up by running its offense through Jones, but the star scorer only had four points in the final six minutes as the Bulldogs fell by 10 points.
Newby scored eight as Morrison moved to 4-2 this season. Kelsey added six, followed by Murphy with four. Sliger and Martin finished with two points apiece.
Jones managed to score 12 points against the defense of Smith and retained the league’s scoring lead at 10.6 points per game. Noah Bost scored five points, while Will Cantrell chipped in four. Axel Rodriguez added two points.
In other Elementary League action, Irving College moved into a first-place tie with Warren County Middle School by beating the Centertown Warriors 38-25.
Irving College (6-0) used a balanced scoring attack to defeat the Warriors as nine different Tigers scored.
Chance Hobbs led the way with eight points. Tyler Pomales, Jeffrey McCormick and Luke Martin added six points each. Freddie Trevino finished with four, followed by Lucas Patrick, London Harmon, Jalen Smith and Devin Jordan with two apiece.
Hunter Adams scored seven points as the Warriors fell to 0-6. Rounding out the scoring was Brant Young with five, Dalton Hillis and Nathan Wright with four each and Jax McBride and Blane Elkins with two apiece.
A 12-point night from Thomas Judkins led the Dibrell Wildcats to a 41-22 win over the Boyd Broncos.
Dibrell (3-4) got six points apiece from Lee Randolph and Noah Campbell. Jaeden Pyburn added four, while Jacob Lann chipped in three. Tyler Butcher, Travis Bell, Lane Jones, Nick White and Matthew Vandagriff scored two points each.
Heath Kuykendall led Boyd with nine points. Joshua Argo was next with seven, followed by Bryson Stiles with five and Braydon Scott with one. The Broncos fell to 0-6 with the loss.
