The Pella Boys basketball team dropped a low scoring game against Norwalk at home on Tuesday night, 49 to 39. Norwalk did exactly what they wanted to, in that they turned the contest into a half court game.

Pella is a team that likes to run, and Norwalk was not going to let them do so. Instead, they had to resort to playing a slowed down version of their game while Norwalk sat in a zone defense most of the night, daring Pella to shoot, and the shots just wouldn’t fall for the Little Dutch.

Kyle Newendorp led the way for the Little Dutch with 11 points, Nick Dorman had 8 and Travis Ewing added 7. Pella’s next game is a rescheduled matchup from last weekend, against ADM this Saturday. The Little Dutch are 2 and 1.
