Hounds wallop Alvord in district tilt

By GREG WEBB

PEASTER — In a tough District 9-2A that includes other salty squads like Brock and Ponder, the Peaster Greyhounds kept its hat in the upper echelon ring on Friday with a 68-26 blowout against Alvord on Friday.

Peaster celebrated its Homecoming Night prior to the Hounds-Bulldogs match and kept right on partying as head coach Derron Smith’s boys took control of the game from the tip-off.

Reeling off eight unanswered points to start the match, Peaster applied a full-court press for two quick turnovers, converting both steals to produce a 13-0 count before the Bulldogs found the basket. Alvord failed to find a solution to the Peaster defense as the Hounds took a 19-4 lead by the end of the opening quarter.

With a 31-point edge coming out of the locker room after the break, Smith turned to his bench quickly in the third quarter, giving most of his starters a good deal of rest for the balance of the contest.

But those starters had already done most of their damage.

Ty Ballard led the offense with 20 points on the night, with 16 of those drained in the first half. Ballard was also 4-for-4 from the free-throw line. 

Senior guard Josh Petermeier had a pair of threes, en route to 15 points. With 12 points, Parker Grudt hit three from long range, while Josiah Bingman added seven points to the mix.

With the win, Peaster improves to 4-2 in district play and has reached the mid-point of its district season. The Hounds draw a bye on Tuesday before beginning the second round against Boyd. The rematch with Brock is set for the following Tuesday, at home.
