BEDFORD — Bedford freshmen pulled away from Creston in the second half to defeat the Panther boys Monday night, 42-25.

“We were very competitive through the first half (17-11),” coach Larry Beaman said, “but they had 17 bodies and it was too much for our seven boys to overcome.”

Brandon Jones led the team with 11 points, followed by Brandon Lee with six, Sam Eagan four and Ryan Kucera with one. Next game is Feb. 1 against Red Oak.

Also, statistics were released from the Creston freshman girls’ 27-21 victory first reported in Tuesday’s News Advertiser. Taylor Briley had eight points and Jenna Taylor and Camryn Somers each had six. Taylor led the rebounding with seven and Somers had five. Alli Thomsen had four steals and two assists. Somers and Taylor each had three stelas. Caitlin McIlravy had two assists and three rebounds.

Creston won despite 27 turnovers.
