MONTEVIDEO -- Brett Bergeson poured in 20 points as Montevideo shot 50 percent from the field to hold off Dawson-Boyd 74-63 in a riveting cross-division meeting of neighboring school districts.

It was the first loss for Dawson-Boyd, No. 3 in Class A. Montevideo (7-3) is No. 4 in AA.

Jack Hansen led the Blackjacks (7-1) with 15 points with Nathaniel Huot right behind with 14. Evan Robertson brought down 9 rebounds.

The Thunder Hawks had balanced scoring behind Bergeson. Jake Douglas provided 13 points, Phillip Ward 12, Brett Erickson 10 and Colton Vien with 6 points plus 6 rebounds. Douglas also chipped in 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

The Blackjacks looked right at home in the well-filled two-tier Monte gym in a contest that drew a March-like gathering of fans rightly expecting a highly-charged up-tempo contest.

D-B went up 24-16 forcing a Hawks' time out.

Montevideo, which made 24 of 47 shots, then scored the next nine points over the next two minutes for a 25-24 lead at 4:08.

Hout swished a 3-pointer from three-quarter court as the halftime-buzzer buzzer sounded that would have tied the score 32-all, but the refs, after a brief discussion, waved the make off.

The Jacks forced ties at 40-40 and 45-45 and often needed just a basket to take the lead but never could in the second half. Poor shooting at the free-throw line hurt.

The Blackjacks ended up just 11 of 21 at the charity stripe and were outboarded 31-21.

Zach Stelter and Michael Lee each scored 9 points for the visitors.
