ALLIANCE — The Gering boys and girls basketball teams were on the road last Friday to Alliance for a battle of the Bulldogs – and both squads came away with road wins.

The girls’ 54 – 51 win came down to the final minute with Alliance holding a 51 – 50 lead. But in the final 30 seconds, Alexa Anderson sank four free throws to pull out the win for Gering.
Anderson also led the Lady Bulldogs with 14 points and was nine of 12 from the free throw line.

Going into the fourth quarter, Gering girls were trailing by eight, but went on to outscore Alliance 22 – 11 in the last eight minutes.

Gering was down by six two different times in the fourth quarter, thanks to a pair of 3-pointers by Alliance. But Gering overcame both deficits, converting 12 of 16 free throw shots.
Katie O’Boyle added nine points for Gering and Jessica Rogers chipped in seven.

Alliance senior Shae Brennan led all scorers with 16 points, while teammate Morgan Anthony added nine.

Later that evening, the Gering boys took the court against Alliance. They struggled a bit on offense in the first quarter, coming up with only nine points. But the team heated up in the second, opening up a double-digit advantage that ended with a 59 – 47 win. The win lifts the Gering boys to a 10 – 6 record.

Three Bulldogs scored in double digits as Christian Groskopf led the team with 16. Grant Olson, who scored six straight in the fourth quarter, finished with 14 points. Austin Ferguson added another 10 to the total.

Isaac Burnham of Alliance led all scorers with 19. Teammates Trevor Kamerzell sank 16 points and Jordan Mills chipped in 10.
