The 7th graders dropped a tight two point contest, 29-27--a game coach Dane Wurdeman characterized as hard fought all the way.
“We just couldn’t get shots to fall when we needed them to,” he added.
Brandon Barker let the way with 12 points, followed by Jaden Withrow’s eight.
On the 8th grade side things were even more nerve-wracking. Bridgeport’s closest game coming into Monday’s matchup was an 18 point runaway. Over the weekend they drilled Bayard 68-2.
