DONNELLSON – Jayden Fedler hit for 20 as the Fort Madison Bloodhounds downed Central Lee Tuesday night on the road.
The Hounds put three players in double figures as they won their third game of the last four 63-44 over the Hawks.
Fort Madison had a little trouble shaking off the hosts in the first quarter being up just two at 9-7 with three minutes left in the first quarter. But a 10-5 run to finish up the quarter had the Hounds with some breathing room at 19-12.
Fedler scored 10 of his 20 in the first period and was shut out in the second period.
Central Lee would cut the lead to four at 27-23 with just a minute left in the first half, but Miles Dear would bury a three pointer with less than minute to go to send Fort Madison into the locker room with a seven-point 30-23 lead.
Fedler would get back on track inside in the third putting up six to go along with a couple 3-balls from Dayton Davis and Michael Mosena to stretch the lead to 13, while holding the Hawks to just nine points in the period.
Fort Madison would get 18 to Central’s 12 in the final period to ice the game. Reinburn Turnbull and Matt Hopper would hit a couple 3-pointers off the bench to help set the final score. Fedler added four more in the period.
Dear finished with 11 points for the Hounds, while Parker Denning had 10, Davis scored nine. Jace Burgher put in four for Fort Madison, while Mosena, Turnbull and Hopper each scored three.
Central Lee didn’t have any players in double figures, but nine players got on the board led by Kade Myhre’s eight points. Seth Mayes put in seven, Alex Sandoval had six, Dylan Stuecker and TJ Stutes each had five, followed by Bronson Sargent and Derick Denning with four apiece. Maddox Doty had three and Kaleb Sanders put in a bucket to round out the Hawks (2-16) scoring.
The Hawks take on Danville Thursday at home.
Fort Madison moves to 6-11 on the year, 1-7 in Southeast Conference play. The Hounds travel to Washington on Friday night for a conference matchup.
