For a quarter it all looked so good for the Beaver Dusters. But in the second quarter the Laverne Tigers exploded for 32 points on their way to an 85-64 victory.

“We came in to the game with some good ideas and a good plan,” Dusters coach Craig Schlessman said. “But for some reason we went away from it in the second (quarter) an it all fell apart.”

Beaver looked poised for the upset in the first quarter as they jumped out to a 26-15 lead.

But Laverne's explosive offense came to life in the second quarter with 32 points to take back the lead 47-41 at half.

“We have to play our kind of game,” Schlessman said. “We have to slow the game down and play in the halfcourt to have a chance. We got that lead and it was like we thought we could run with them, and they're just too good and too deep of a team to do that with.”

Laverne pulled further ahead with an 18-11 advantage in the third to move ahead by double-digits, and put the game out of reach in the fourth.

Garrett Weber led the Dusters with 22 points; Jorge Rivera added 17, and Hadley Skaggs 9.

Beaver will take on Ringwood tonight at 8 pm in Seiling in an elimination game.
