LOCAL ROUNDUP: Blue Devils survive late rally from Bearcats

MILFORD — The Bismarck-Henning boys basketball team had a big scare on Friday as they were able to defeat Milford 55-52 in Vermilion Valley Conference action to stay undefeated in conference play.

The Blue Devils took the early 23-15 lead after the first quarter and a 35-26 halftime lead, but in the fourth the Bearcats made their move.

Milford outscored Bis-Henn 17-9 in the fourth and could have taken the lead but a 3-pointer by Jordan Gullquist rimmed out and the Blue Devils hit some late free-throws to preserve the win.

Austin Toler had 18 points for Bis-Henn while Wilde Garowski had 15 and Chase Connelly added right.

Jeff Cann had a game-high 21 points for Milford while Josh Killion had 16 points and Alex Portwood added seven.

The Blue Devils will travel to Catlin on Tuesday to play Salt Fork while the Bearcats will have their final home game of the season tonight against Iroquois West.
