The Gallatin Bulldogs have repeated as Gallatin Invitiational Tournament boy's champions, using a strong third quarter performance on Saturday afternoon to race past the Trenton Bulldogs, in a 66-55 final, heard on Hot Country Z 101.7 and www.kgozfm.com.

Gallatin led for the majority of the first half, but a Trenton run gave the second-seeded Bulldogs a one point lead at the break. Gallatin, with a switch to a zone defense giving Trenton troubles in the third quarter, outscored Trenton 18-8 over that stretch, and never gave up the lead, with Trenton able to cut that advantage to single digits very late in the fourth quarter.

Gallatin, now 4-0 on the young season, was paced by 16 points from Derrick Lin, 13 from Daltonn Tompkins, and 12 points from tournament MVP Dexter Daniel. Trenton, now 3-1 on the campaign, was paced by 19 points from Colby Larson and 13 from Austin Taul.

Gallatin will play AT Gilman City on Tuesday night, and host Winston on Thursday night of this week, with Trenton hosting Princeton on Tuesday night, and South Harrison on Friday night.

The Braymer boys took third place at Gallatin with a 61-34 win over Maysville. On Friday night, the Winston boys won the consolation final over Newtown-Harris, 78-58, while the Gilman City boys took seventh place, over Tri-County, by a score of 48-45.

In the girl's championship game, also heard Saturday on Hot Country Z 101.7, the Trenton Lady Bulldogs used their superior athleticism to out-run the top-seeded Maysville Wolverines, in a 67-40 final that sends Trenton into the new week with a season record of 4-0.

The Lady Bulldogs, after some early struggles against Maysville's pressure defense, used long passes to get easy baskets against the Wolverines in opening up the lead, with Trenton especially potent late in the second quarter, in a stretch that saw THS open up the lead to 37-19 at halftime.

Scotlin Hurley led Trenton with 18 points, with Avery Whitaker adding 15, and Cassidy Cotton 12. Maysville had senior foward Torri Blythe with 17 points, with freshman forward Rachel Boucher adding 12.

The third place girls game went to Gallatin, in a 65-33 rout over Braymer. The Winston Lady Redbirds took the consolation plaque with a 50-41 win over Gilman City on Friday night, with the Newtown-Harris girls beating Tri-County for the second time this season in the seventh place game, 49-24.

In the semifinals from Thursday night, the Trenton boys beat Braymer, 54-45, with Chase Tolson scoring 17 points, Colby Larson 14, and Austin Taul 10 for Trenton. Braymer had 12 points from Jesse Utt and 11 from Logan O'Dell.

The Maysville girls beat Braymer in the semifinal round 61-51, with Trenton defeating Gallatin, 62-48, behind 19 points from Avery Whitaker.
