HOWARD — Through two and a half quarters, a young East Knox boys basketball team was giving Johnstown fits. But, in the blink of an eye, things came apart for the Bulldogs and the Johnnies took home a 56-30 victory in Mid-Buckeye Conference action Friday at East Knox.

“In the third quarter, things unraveled on us,” said East Knox coach Don McDaniel. “We are just not strong enough mentally to overcome all the turnovers; one became two became three.

“Honestly, I’m very proud of the way we played in the first half. Even though we lost by 26, I’m still coming away from this game positive. It was a good learning experience for us.”

The Bulldogs (0-3 overall, 0-3 MBC) matched Johnstown’s defensive pressure early as the first quarter ended with the Johnnies ahead just 6-5.
