Offensive basketball was not in short supply Wednesday night in Memorial Gymnasium as Morgan and Bear River combined for 161 points and 21 made three-point shots as Bear River held on to defeat the rival Trojans 84-77. Morgan came out in the first quarter smoking hot as they nailed 5 three’s and posted 22 points. Bear River stayed close with three 3’s of their own and were down by just four points at the first quarter break. The second quarter saw much of the same as 52 points were scored in the quarter. Bear River tallied 27 points to Morgan’s 25. Morgan still held a two point edge at the halftime break. Luckily for the Bears the third quarter was kind to them and they out-scored Morgan 17-8 and went up by as many as 10 points in the quarter and then held on throughout the remainder of the contest to win by a margin of 7.
Four Bear River players finished the game with double figure scoring led by Mark Huber’s 23. Ren Fonnesbeck nailed 5 three-pointers and finished with 22 followed by Wyatt Roholt with 15 and Parker Coombs with 10. Kelton Summers and Logan Litchford were huge in this game as they combined to score 14 points and provided much needed defensive toughness and rebounding.
