In the third meeting between the two teams this season, the Melcher-Dallas boys basketball team finally got the win over Moravia – defeating the Mohawks 55-52 in last night’s Bluegrass Conference Tournament game. The win may have had more drama than necessary for the Saints, though, as they held a 16-point lead in the first half before letting Moravia slowly creep back into the game. Melcher-Dallas closed out the game at the free-throw line. Ross Dawson had a team-best 20 points and 12 rebounds in the winning effort. The Melcher-Dallas boys will now play Mormon Trail on Tuesday in their next Bluegrass Conference Tournament game.
