The Van Meter Freshman moved to 5 – 0 on the season with a solid win at Des Moines Christian 49 – 43. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early 13 – 4 lead, but good outside shooting from DMC kept the game close. Eventually, Van Meter’s defensive pressure forced enough turnovers resulting in some easy transition buckets. Michael Banks led all scorers with 12, while Gus Rosener added 10 pts, including a couple big threes. Low post scoring was big with Ike Speltz (10 pts), Michael Steinfeldt (8 pts), and Ashtian Watson (6 pts) dominating inside. Will Gordan (3 pts) and Rylan Wiedman helped control the tempo of the game with solid defensive effort. The freshman play again Monday (1/13) at Carroll Kuemper.
