G/T hangs on to beat A-R – Leiting, Dyhrkopp both score 15 points

By Staff | Jan 24, 2008

TERRIL — Although Graettinger/Terril wasn’t at its best and Armstrong-Ringsted kept the game at a slow pace, the Knights came out on top in a low-scoring affair, 36-31, on Tuesday.

“We worked the ball–that’s the best way to go against them,” said A-R coach George Walker. “We played good defense and they had to work for every basket they got.”

Nevertheless, the Mustangs came away still looking for a win this season.

A-R jumped out to an 8-5 lead in the first quarter, but the Knights tied the game up at 15-15 by halftime.

“We were not very sharp tonight,” aid G/T coach Brent Dyhrkopp. “Luckily we were able to hang in there and have a chance to win at the end.”

G/T took a 24-23 lead after three quarters and made enough free throws down the stretch to preserve the win.

“We got better as the game went on and executed much better in the fourth quarter,” said Dyhrkopp. “A-R is a tough matchup for us. They have good size, ball handlers and play mostly upperclassmen.”

The Knights had an advantage at the foul line, making 13-of-20 shots while A-R was just 3-of-6.

G/T’s Tyler Leiting and Cody Dyhrkopp both had 15 points while Drew Skattebo contributed six points along with a team-high four assists and three steals.

G/T out-rebounded A-R 27-19 with Dalton Perrin leading the way with 11 rebounds.

A-R (0-12, 0-10) hosts Ventura on Friday.

G/T (5-8) hosts North Sentral Kossuth on Friday.
