    Paynesville 66, YME 55
    Despite being only down by one point at the half, the Yellow Medicine East boys basketball team lost to Paynesville by 11 points on Thursday, bringing their overall record to 0-6.
    It was 29-28 when the buzzer rang at halftime, but instead of rallying, the Sting slipped, coming in with just 27 points to the Bulldog’s 37 in the second half.
    Andrew Topp’s all around performance made him the Bulldog to beat, with a double-double 18 points and 12 rebounds, as well as four steals and four assists. He was followed by Mitchell Weidner with 16 points and seven rebounds.
    Logan DeBlieck produced 17 points and eight rebounds, while Blake Lindstrom had 12 points, including the only three-pointer for the Sting.
    The teams were essentially matched for the most part, each with around a 40 percent completion rate on just over 50 attempts. The Bulldogs, however, hit 17 of their 26 free throws, compared to the Sting’s 10 of 23, an area where YME has struggled for most of the season.
     After a brief break for the holidays, the boys will return with a two day tournament at the Norwood Young America on December 27 and 28.
