Reed-Custer 80, Dwight 49
    DWIGHT — Reed-Custer might be as strong as in recent years, but the Comets still like to get up and down the floor and take many shots. This style worked Tuesday night as Dwight got burned by this style 80-49 in a nonconference contest at Kresl Memorial Gymnasium.
    Although the 3-pointer used to be a major factor in the uptempo style the Comets employ, the visitors managed to only make one more shot from beyond the arc than the Trojans.
    Reed-Custer was aggressive in the first quarter by putting up 23 points in taking an 11-point lead. The Comets scored 21 points in the second frame as they doubled Dwight’s output in the first half 44-22. The difference was 63-40 after three periods.
    Dakota Wahl paced Dwight with 11 points and Morgan Fritz scored 8. Cal Schultz and Cole Hahn each netted 7 points with Andrew Curl and Colton Holm each scoring 5. Dane Rodosky and Tyler Masching contributed 3 points apiece.
