Bronson outlasts Oak Hall in semis

-A A +A
By Jenna McKenna

With an incredible defensive performance and timely shooting, Bronson muscled past nemesis Oak Hall Friday night to earn a spot in the district final.

The 44-40 finish came on a balanced shooting performance by Bronson and a critical shutdown of Oak Hall?s offense in the third quarter.

The blue Eagles pushed to a bare first quarter lead on scores by C.J. King and Terrance Dukes, who had four points each on Bronson's 10-point quarter. The blue Eagles picked up the attack in the second quarter, as the game-high scorer, Kelby Barber, weighed in with his first points. Dion Thomas added a step-back three and Dukes took a rebound coast to coast.

Barber and Jermey Mayes made life miserable for Oak Hall?s one-two offensive punch of Luke DiPerna and Skyler Neale, holding the normally dominant pair to 11 and 10 points on the night, respectively.

"We put our best defenders on them and said, 'Lock 'em down,' " said Bronson coach Kelly Beckham.
