PRATT — McPherson’s seventh-grade boys recorded their first basketball win of the season Monday by outlasting Pratt Liberty, 29-26.

Cody Stufflebean and Hayes Schmid tossed in nine points apiece as the Bullpups evened their record.

“I was very pleased with effort on the defensive end in both games,” MMS coach Treg Fawl said. “The A-team picked up the intensity in the second half and played better. Our goal is to keep improving in all areas of the game.”

The B-team also evened its record with a 32-13 blistering behind seven points by Tyler Dingman and six from Sam Pyle.

The Bullpups are off until Dec. 4 when they host Salina South at Park School.

MMS A (29) — Stufflebean 9, Schmid 9, Courtney 7, Hoppes 2, Koehn 2.

MMS B (32) — Dingman 7, Pyle 6, Stecklein 5, Stockham 4, Houghton 3, Schrader 2, Jamie 2, Stout 2, Whitfield 1.
