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.

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