The Dawson County High School boys basketball team won games against Miles City and Glasgow over the weekend.
Led by sharpshooter Stephon Steinbron, DCHS defeated Miles City, 57-53, Friday. Steinbron scored 18 points, as his teammates Pacyn Partridge made 16 and Robby Keiser added 14.
“I was really proud of the way the kids competed,” head coach Wade Murphy wrote in email. “We knocked down some big free throws and I thought that was the difference.”
Murphy added: “Our kids really played hard and made plays when they needed to be made.”
The following day, DCHS crushed Glasgow, 73-40, putting up the most points all year to earn the win.
This time it was Partridge who led the team with 15 points. Steinbron had 12 and Phipps finished with 11.
“It was our most complete game of the year,” Murphy wrote. “We finally had a game where we knocked down some shots and that was the difference.”
DCHS now has an overall record of 4-10.
The Red Devils are scheduled to host Wolf Point at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Dawson Community College, before heading on the road to play Billings Central and Laurel next week. They then have matchups against Sidney and Miles City in preparation for the Class A Divisional tournament in less than a month.
“I really like the direction of our team right now,” Murphy wrote. “We need to continue to focus on getting better every day in hopes of being our best at tournament time.”
