Centreville got some breathing room with a 36-22 advantage in the middle quarters Tuesday to lock up a 67-60 victory over Bloomingdale in a varsity boys basketball game at home.
Both teams produced 14 points in the first quarter, which included a seven-point effort by the Bulldogs’ Nick Weber, who finished with 17 points and three 3-pointers. Hayden Stauffer led Centreville with 21 after notching 15 in the middle periods. Stauffer ended the night 7-of-8 from the free-throw line.
Ross Hunter scored 14 points, Jared Rank had six, Sam Todd added five, and both McClain Lemings and Trenton Kindig tossed in two.
“Everyone on the team contributed in tonight’s win,” Centreville coach Mike Hunter said. “We had three strong seniors leading in shots and our point guards had great control on the floor. Our defense was stronger tonight as we put pressure on Bloomingdale’s shooters. We made the shots they we’ve been practicing and the momentum kept us confident and determined to finish with the win.”
Stauffer also finished with seven rebounds, and Todd led with three steals and seven assists.
