The A-team improved to 5-0 with a 48-26 destruction. Ben Pyle furnished 16 points to lead the Bullpups, with Drew Labertew just missing doubles with nine.

The B-team is now 4-1 after a 41-22 rout. A trio of eight-point scorers led the Bullpups, including Brian Puhalla, Brandon Wills and Austen Hunt.

The Bullpups play Thursday at Salina South.

MMS A (48) — Pyle 16, Labertew 9, Alexander 6, Seidl 6, Diggs 6, Wills 3, Brossard 2.

MMS B (41) — Puhalla 8, Wills 8, Hunt 8, Cape 7, Nikkel 4, Williams 3, Milleson 2, Wilde 1.
