Blue Devils down Blackhawks

PITSBURG – The Brookville Blue Devils brought a 7-0 record into the opening game of the Jet Holiday Tournament at Franklin Monroe High School to defeate the Mississinawa Valley Blackhawks by a 58-31 score.

“They played well,” MV coach Tim Barga said of Brookville. I have to give that to them. They did everything we thought they would do – drive, penetrate, dish-off, layup after layup after layup. We just weren’t quick enough to handle their guys.”

Brookville took the opening period 17-9 and the second quarter of play 14-8 to lead 31-17 with the teams heading to the halftime break.

Period No. 3 went to Brookville 11-6 to give the Blue Devils a 42-23 lead and went on to take the final quarter 16-8 for the win and move into the Saturday night championship game.

“I thought we would do better,” Barga stated, “but we didn’t.”
