BDS Wins First Three

The Bruning-Davenport/Shickley boys finally got their varsity season started Friday against the Longhorns of Dorchester in Bruning. The first game jitters bit the Eagles for the first few minutes of the game as they struggled to find the basket, but Josiah Kamler got a chance to break the ice from the free throw line to give the Eagles their first point of the season. From there, sophomore Dalton Kleinschmidt hit another free throw and fellow sophomore Eric Schroeder hit a couple of outside shots to get the Eagles on top at the end of the first quarter 10-6.
After the first quarter the Eagles settled in, particularly on the defensive end taking a 25-12 lead into halftime.
“I had a feeling we could have a little trouble getting established after losing eight seniors from last year, so we talked to the guys about keeping a level head and letting it work out and I think they did a good job of being patient until a few buckets started to fall for us,” Eagle head coach Greg Schroeder said.
The second half was more of the same as the Eagles held strong defensively and ended with a 60-20 win.
Dorchester: 6-6-4-4-20
BDS:    10-15-20-15-60

BDS Scoring: L.Schroeder-11, J. Kamler-3, J.Grote-4, Kleinschmidt-3, E.Schroeder-10, Weber-13, Ardissono-9, Noel-5, Schlegel-2
Game two of the season brought the Lawrence/Nelson Raiders to Davenport for a game between two traditional football schools. The football background proved true on the basketball floor as both teams displayed physicality throughout the game.
Unlike their first game, the 3-0 Eagles got the scoring going right away with a bucket but Nolan Weber to get the Eagles the early lead. Five Eagles scored in the first quarter which was the beginning of a balanced night for the Eagle attack as at least five Eagles scored in every quarter throughout the game. However, it was the defensive end of the floor that carried the Eagles for the night.
“Lawrence/Nelson ran some nice pick and roll patterns that put a lot of pressure on our post players, but I felt they did a good job of working up and taking care of their job tonight,” Schroeder said. “Our post players, along with some of our shorter guards really worked hard to keep them from getting easy buckets.”
The offensive balance and defensive effort helped the Eagles take a 26-10 lead into the half and eventually finished with a 50-20 win on the night. The Eagles take the court next week as Class C-2 state-rated Sutton comes to Davenport on Tuesday and the Cougars of Cross County travel to Davenport on Friday.
