Hayden boys basketball defeats Vail Mountain, 53-41


— The Hayden High School boys basketball team picked up a 53-41 win Tuesday at Vail Mountain School.

The Tigers struggled early, trailing, 16-12, after one quarter. But Hayden started playing better, tying it at 22 at the half and leading, 36-33, going into the fourth.

“Offensively, we started slow,” Hayden coach Mike Lupus said. “Things turned, and we were able to eliminate some turnovers.”

Mark Doolin led the Tigers with 17 points. Jorge Valdez had 10. Hayden next plays at 7 p.m. Friday at West Grand.

Saturday’s home game also has a time change. The girls will play at 2 p.m. with the boys to follow at 3:30 p.m.
