The Cashmere boys basketball team started the season with a win after they played at Sultan on Nov. 28, beating their opponents 74-55.

Cashmere Head Coach Keith Boyd said the boys made a great effort and he was happy about the ending result of the game.

"We jumped on Sultan early," Boyd said. "We converted easy transition layins off of turnovers."

The Bulldogs kept the lead against Sultan for the entire game. However, in the third quarter Sultan made a run at Cashmere and pulled within seven points. The Bulldogs were able to overcome their run and pulled away in the fourth quarter leading by 21 points at one point.

Four of Cashmere's players were in double figures in the game. Senior Jordan Christensen, a guard, had a total of 21 points. He had a field goal shooting percentage of 83 percent and went 75 percent on the three-point line. He was also 100 percent on free throws.

Junior Dylan Boyd had 17 points, making 3-of-4 field goal shot attempts and 2-of-7 three-point shot attempts. Boyd shot 100 percent on free throws. Senior Coleman McElroy scored 16 points for the Bulldogs and senior Dawson Taylor scored 10.

Boyd, a guard, passed the ball well to rack up 11 assists. He also played aggressive on defense stealing the ball four times. Junior Connor Badgley, a 6-foot-5 post, came up big below the basket grabbing nine rebounds for the Bulldogs. McElroy had seven rebounds.

Coming off the bench, Sophomore Mason Elliott had four assists, six rebounds, and two steals.

"It was a very solid performance for our first game," Boyd said.

The boys will continue pre-season games this week as they face Cheney on Saturday. The Bulldogs played against Eastmont on Tuesday for their first home game but results were unavailable at press time.

Boyd said Eastmont and Cheney are two very tough opponents and will be challenging for the Bulldogs.

"They are excited to play against quality opponents. This will make us better for our Caribou Trail League season," Boyd said.

The first CTL game of the season for the boys basketball team is Dec. 11 at Quincy. Quincy is one of two newcomers to the CTL this year.
