Dakota holds off Eisenhower
By Thomas Franz email@example.com
In a rematch of a game won by Utica Eisenhower earlier this season, Macomb Dakota got revenge on the Eagles by winning on the road Feb. 11 52-46.
Sophomore guard Chris Marshall led Dakota with 15 points and four rebounds, while his backcourt mate, DJ Lazarus, added 12 points and four rebounds.
“We’ve been talking about this for weeks, to play as a team down the stretch by limiting our turnovers and playing together, and we did that,” Dakota coach Paul Tocco said. “I’m very proud of our team.”
Dakota led the entire game but stretched its lead to double digits just twice, with one of those times coming in the fourth quarter when the Cougars led 48-38. Eisenhower went on a 6-0 run to cut the deficit to four with 50 seconds to play, but Dakota was able to hold off the Eagles from there.
Brandon Brundirks led Eisenhower with 22 points while shooting 9-12 from the field. He also collected 10 rebounds.
Both teams now sit at 6-3 in the Macomb Area Red and trail Romeo High by two games. Eisenhower visits Romeo, and Dakota visits L’Anse Creuse North, on Friday night.
