HAMPTON – Fifth-ranked Clear Lake ran out to a 27-15 halftime lead and poured it on in an eventual 68-45 win over Hampton-Dumont on Friday, Dec. 13.

The Bulldogs were unable to stop the Lions, which had four players finish in double digit scoring, with no player finishing with more than 12 points for a balanced effort.

“I thought in the first half, we played defense to the caliber of a conference championship team,” H-D coach Heath Walton said. “I thought our offense was of the caliber of a team that is going to struggle to win games. We’re not going to hold a team like Clear Lake to 45 points."
