Peetz Bulldogs Open Strong


December 18, 2019

Peetz junior Nolan Hill goes up for two during the Bulldog's victory over Leyton on Thursday.

Opening the Carlisle Classic with a resounding 69-to-39 victory against Otis, the Bulldogs followed up the next day with a nail-biting 53-to-52 victory over against Prairie. Peetz then had two more big wins against Lone Star and Leyton to open the season with a 4-and-0 record.

Head Coach Sean Fehringer's squad looks to already be in mid-season form, playing aggressive and effective defense while effectively passing the ball to set up good looks for the offense.

Peetz opened up fast against Lone Star, with senior Cooper White directing the offense a dishing the ball effectively to Nolan Hill and Marcus Bernhardt to open a 21-to-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Lone Star regrouped and broke through the Bulldog's defense, scoring enough to narrow the Peetz lead to 31-to-19 at the half. The lopsided first quarter was too much for the Longhorns to overcome, and the Bulldogs cruised to a 60-to-35 win.

On Thursday, the Leyton Warriors traveled down from Nebraska and again the Bulldogs built an insurmountable lead by halftime, and coasted to a 49-to-26 victory. Peetz next travels to rival Haxtun for a matchup on December 17.
