A season-high offensive output carried the Ogden boys’ basketball team to an 82-49 romp over West Central Valley here last Tuesday. Two days later (Thursday) the Bulldogs dropped a 60-56 decision to Earlham. The split left Ogden at 6-7 overall and 4-6 in West Central Conference action.

ALL BULLDOGS

Ogden dashed to a large lead early of 28-4 after one quarter and never looked back against West Central Valley. The hosts added 20 points in the second period and 21 in the fourth.

Griffin Diggs’ 16 points led a 10-cager scoring column for the Bulldogs. Freshman Jack Christensen was next at 14 points followed by Kolby Moorman and Ty Heeren 11 apiece and eight each for Kaleb Badker and Noah Lingren, who had a team-best seven rebounds. Diggs added six boards, five of the team’s 20 steals and three assists. The winners sank nine three-balls with Heeren three and two for Diggs and Christensen.

“We started fast out of the gate scoring 28 in the first period and really never looked back. This was a game where I was able to play a lot of kids, it was very nice to be able to do that in a varsity setting,” said Ogden coach Scott Church.
