Bear River battles past El Dorado
By: Journal Sports Staff
Patrick Scott saved his best for last Wednesday night at Lake of the Pines. The Bear River High senior scored 23 of his game-high 31 points in the second half as the Bruins picked up a big 64-58 win over El Dorado. The victory vaulted Bear River (15-6 overall, 5-1 Pioneer Valley League) into a first-place tie atop the PVL after the first half of the league schedule. The game was tight the whole way, but Scott helped the Bruins hold off the visitors with four 3-pointers in the second half. Garrett Barbic added 13 points and Jordan Beskeen tossed in 11. The Bruins will host Colfax Friday at 7:30 p.m.
