Wellington-Napoleon opened their game with visiting Hardin-Central by scoring the first 17 points and was never threatened as the Tigers rolled past the Dawgs 65-30 Tuesday night.
Bulldog coach Kirk Thacker said it just wasn’t a very pretty night for his Bulldogs.
“I think their size and speed intimidated us,” he said. “We didn’t get in and play until late in the second quarter. We had quite a few unforced turnovers in the first half and they scored off of them so it got out of hand early.”
The Tigers, now 12-3, held a 21-5 after the opening quarter and stretched the advantage to 37-11 by the intermission. Wellington-Napoleon then led 59-23 after three periods.
Brett Williams scored a game-high 17 points for the Tigers, followed by Ethan Arndt with 14 and Cameron Seitz with 11.
Daniel Carpenter led the 7-12 Bulldogs with 12 points, with Patrick King adding 6 points and 7 rebounds with a pair of blocks. Mark Carpenter added 4 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and a pair of assists, while Chris Herring and Jake Harris scored 3 points apiece with Chris Wilson adding 2.
Herring also had 3 rebound with 2 steals and 2 assists.
