Warren boys, girls post road victories

DUBOIS — Seniors Payton Barnes and Ben Berdine combined for 12 points in a 19-11 second quarter, and Warren’s boys basketball team held off host DuBois, 45-39, Saturday for its first win of the season.

Barnes, a recent Pittsburgh at Bradford commit, scored 8 of his team-high 15 points in the quarter for the Dragons (1-2). Berdine finished with 13 in the win.

“Our energy and effort was much better,” said Warren coach Jeff Berdine. “We made them work to get good shots and when they had opportunities to convert down the stretch, they were not able to do so. Our guard play on defense was much improved from the first two games and I thought we did a very good job on the defensive end limiting them to one shot on each possession. I was also pleased to see our bench being very active and enthusiastic when the kids on the floor made plays and helped us create some energy playing in an empty gym.”

The Dragons had a three-point lead in the fourth when Berdine fouled out, but DuBois missed some looks and couldn’t take advantage.

Berdine finished with eight rebounds, and Barnes added six and three assists. Point guard Tommy Nyquist had 4 points, six rebounds, six assists, and three steals.

Kody Vega had 12 points in a 40-34 junior varsity loss earlier Saturday.

“Defensively, they came out ready to go,” Warren coach Lisa LaVan said. “It’s been a big focus this year. I was happy with our matchup and the way we were able to play man-to-man.”

In addition to their offensive effort, Ruhlman finished with seven rebounds and five assists, while Childress added six assists. Teagan Paris contributed seven rebounds to go with her 7 points.
