The Trenton boys, aiming to win their fifth game in a row, got the job done, but had to use a big fourth-quarter surge to put away a stubborn Plattsburg squad, 65-50. Chase Tolson hit 14 free throws on the night, part of a 20 point effort for the senior point guard. Wilson Utley had his best game of the season, with 16 points for the Bulldogs, while the big men got involved inside, with Chris Kurtz and Chris Flowers both scoring 10 points. For Plattsburg, Braden Price had 22 points, not enough to keep the Tigers from falling to 0-5.
