LOCAL ROUNDUP: DACC men set more new marks

QUINCY —  While the DACC men’s basketball team is not looking to make history, it still keeps on hitting milestones.

On Saturday, the Jaguars hit a few more milestones in their regular season finale, beating John Wood 57-52 to win their 16th in a row, beating out the 1970-71 teams’ 15 in a row and are the first team to win all its games in a Mid-West Athletic Conference season.

“We have built up a lot of confidence,” DACC coach Mike Carpenter said. “We went into a tough environment today and they kept their confidence when things got tough.”

The Jaguars had a 35-25 lead at halftime, but John Wood kept fighting and cut the lead to three with a few minutes left before DACC put the game away.

Derek Shouse had 13 points, while Chris Whitehead and Ronnie White each had 12 and Mike Ryce had nine points and eight rebounds.

Carpenter also praised his bench for their contributions.

“Out bench players came in and did a great job and made some great stops,” Carpenter said. “We need that to get through the region tournament.”

The Region 24 Tournament will start on Friday at Quincy with DACC, who is now 27-3 with a 10-0 record in the MWAC and 11-0 against teams from Region 24, going against Lincoln Land at 4 p.m.

QUINCY — Kameren Cole had 16 points, but the Lady Jaguars were down by as much as 21 points in losing to John Wood.

Stephanie Lord had 13 points and three steals for DACC, while Emily Montgomery had 12, Samantha Siddens and Megan Hiner each had six and Tori Stephenson had five assists.

“We didn’t play particularly well today at either end of the floor,” DACC coach Kyle Bent said. “We need to bounce back and be ready for Wednesday. It’s one and done from here on out.”

The Lady Jaguars end the regular season 21-9 and will host John Wood on Wednesday in a Region 24 Tournament opening round game.

DAYTON, Ohio — The Dashers could not find much offense in Game 2 of the Western Conference final against the Demonz and are now down 2-0.

After a scoreless first period, Dayton put the game away with a hat trick in the second by Jason Hill.

The Demonz added two more scores in the third before Jonathan Juliano scored Danville’s only goal with an assist from Justin Barr and Phillippe St. Laurent.

Peter Dundovich had 34 saves in goal for the Dashers, who will return to the David S. Palmer Arena on Friday to try to avoid the sweep.
