The Beaver Dusters held the Buffalo Bison to just six second half points on their way to a 41-29 win.

It was quite a turnaround after the Dusters gave up 23 in the first half, and trailed by five at the break.

“We got off to a rough start, but we talked it over at half and made some adjustments,” Dusters coach Craig Schlessman said. “We had to settle down. We were trying to run and gun, and Buffalo was able to slow us down. But when we slowed down and ran our offense, we started to put some points on the board.”

Turnovers caused the Dusters problems in the first half, and also led to easy buckets for the Bison. But with a patient offense in the second half, those turnovers all but vanished and the Dusters were much more efficient on offense.

Buffalo keyed their defense to shutdown Beaver’s top returning scorer, Garrett Weber. So the offense fed post player Jorge Rivera, who finished with 20 points.

Beaver (2-0) will host Guymon next Tuesday.
