MINDEN — Class C-2 No. 5 Doniphan-Trumbull outscored the Blue Hill boys basketball team 36-23 in the second half to win 69-46 Tuesday in a semifinal matchup of the C2-8 subdistrict tournament at CLJ Middle School in Minden.
Doniphan-Trumbull held an 11-2 lead early in the first quarter before Blue Hill surged back with a 12-2 run to give the Bobcats a 14-13 lead at the end of the first quarter.
“They went zone, and we just missed some shots,” said Doniphan-Trumbull head coach Steve Hartman of the first quarter. “They were doing a nice job of giving us one shot and rebounding. (Mitchell) Ruybalid decided he was going to put them on his shoulders and make some plays on the offensive end, he gave us fits guarding him.
“Our kids really kept their composure and nobody really panicked. We just kept playing. Sooner or later our size inside just wore them down.”
