ST. IGNATIUS — Crowds filled the St. Ignatius High School gym to watch the varsity boys and girls basketball teams battle it out against Superior on Friday, Jan. 19.

The night started out with the boys on the court who were fighting to get their first win of the season during a game that was consistently within two to three points.

In the last five minutes of the game, the boys tied it up and the teams continued to compete for the win. Superior scored a point making things look bleak for the Bulldogs, but the Dogs caught up in the last minute and the tie continued. 

Jose O’Brian, for the Bulldogs, intercepted the ball and scored a three-point shot for the win, 42 to 39, with five seconds on the clock.

Bulldog head coach Stuart Grant said, “We have played some very good competition this season, and with us being halfway through our season, we have started figuring out who we are as a team, and we got our first win with a great buzzer beater.”

The girls took to the court against Superior and held the lead early in the game with a 37 to 18 score by halftime. The girls ended the game with 57 to 29 giving them another win for the season. 

Lady Bulldog head coach Dalton Delaney said: “We’ve had a good season so far. We are getting a lot of experience and getting better with every game with only two losses.”
