The Madison boys overcame some early shooting woes on Thursday night to take down the Flandreau Fliers, 58-42. Flandreau got a strong start from Tash Lunday, who scored all of the Fliers 11 points in the 1st quarter. Still, Madison took a six point lead after the 1st, and while the Bulldogs couldn’t pull away they also lead nearly the entire game.
Tyler Tappe and Cody Brown each finished with 15 points for the Bulldogs. Brown did so while spending a lot of time on the bench in foul trouble. Tappe also added 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Carter Bergheim scored 9 for the Bulldogs and Logan Allbee added 7 off the bench. Lunday finished with 25 points and 13 rebounds for the Fliers.
Madison is now 6-1 on the season, after winning their 4th game in a row. Flandreau falls to 5-4.
The Bulldogs JV team was also a winner on Thursday, 56-34 over Flandreau. Dillon Bickett scored 12 points for Madison. Gabe Olson added 9 while Adam Roemen and Trey Smith each had 8. Eight players in total scored for the Bulldogs, as they got back in the win column after a loss earlier in the week to Watertown.
