Van Meter survived a late comeback from a strong Winterset team Thursday night in Van Meter. The Bulldogs held as much as a 9 point lead in the 4th quarter, but a flurry of threes by the Winterset guards tied it up with 2 minutes to play. A basket by Spencer Lamb put Van Meter up 2 with about a minute to play. Van Meter survived a late 3 point attempt by Winterset to hang on for the 2 point victory. Ryan Schmitt led the way with 15, Anthony Potthoff had 14 and Spencer Lamb finished with 12 to finish the double digit scorers. The Bulldogs played the game without their starting point guard Ian Abrahamson and got great minutes from multiple bench players. Parker Fryar started in place of Abrahamson and Zach Madden each had a big 5 points for the Bulldogs to gain the team win. Van Meter plays 4 games next week so come catch the Bulldogs in action.
