AURELIA - Aurelia coach Grant Peckenschneider said his Bulldog team "played the best half we've played all year" in getting off to a 36-12 halftime lead over Schaller-Crestland in Northwest Conference boys'basketball action here on Jan.6.

After the break, though, said the Bulldog coach, "We forgot to come out and give the same effort." As a result, the Wildcats cut the Bulldog's 24-point halftime margin in half at one point before the 'Dogs evened things out. SC trailed by 14 after three quarters, 40-26, and the Bulldogs won the game by 16, 50-34.

Schaller-Crestland was led by steve Mason with 14 points and Josh Alesch with 13.

Coach Peckenschneider said, "It was nice to see Jordan (Glawe) score in double figures. Aaron (Bruce) had seven assists and that is what we need from someone on the team - to distribute the ball."

"Overall," concluded Peckenschneider, "it was a good win for the boys after starting the season with five losses against some quality opponents."
