The Bunceton boys basketball team fell at home Friday night against Frontier School of Excellence Charter by a score of 74-63.
The Dragons, dropping to 0-3 on the season, trailed 37-24 at the half before rallying back with a 39-37 advantage in the final two periods.
Bunceton coach CassKeene said the boys played a team that is within their reach. “As a team we have to learn how to win games by playing on both sides of the ball for all four quarters,” Keene said. “Our defensive effort was subpar and we turned the ball over 26 times. Our offense is hurting due to a lack of effective ball movement, and our defense is suffering from not seeing the ball go through the hoop on offense. Rylee Knaphiede played a good game on both ends.”
Jordan Furtune had 36 points to lead Frontier School of Excellence.
For Bunceton, Rylee Knapheide finished the game with a double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds along with two steals and one assist.
