The Van Meter Bulldogs got a hard fought victory Thursday night over previously unbeaten Des Moines Christian. Van Meter fell behind after the first quarter on some hot shooting by DMC. But the Bulldogs kept attacking inside and did a better job of defending the three in the 2nd quarter to take a 5 point lead into the half. During the third quarter Van Meter began to extend the lead but could never put them away. DMC battled back and pulled with a couple points at times. Van Meter put it away during the 4th with some big baskets and finishing it off with free throws. Blake Fryar led the way with 16 and Ryan Schmitt had 12 to help the cause. Van Meter got some solid bench play out of Mitch Pomeroy and Anthony Potthoff to help hold off Des Moines Christian. Van Meter improves to 10-0 on the season and will host Earlham next Tuesday night.
