The Dawgs finished the first quarter down by 10 points, but sharp 3-point shooting from Ezra Miller, combined with great defense, allowed Dalton to get back in the game. After holding the Bobcats to only four points in the fourth quarter, the Dawgs secured the 59-54 road win. Their overall record is now 16-4 and they are 10-3 in WCAL action.
