<strong>Bear River falls short at Judge Memorial, 62-54</strong>

The Bear River Bears fought tooth and nail not only against a good Judge Memorial squad but against the most wild and loudest crowd they’ve seen or heard yet. Unfortunately, the Bears fell just short 62-54.Bear River can fault the big hole they dug themselves in, falling behind 17 points and allowing a capacity crowd in Salt Lake City to get into it. But in the second half the Bears clawed their way back and cut it to within one late in the fourth quarter. Derek White played center and against some tall timber but managed to score eight points and pull down eight rebounds, two of them were huge in the furious rally the Bears made late in the game.However, Judge continued to make free throws when they needed and set off a celebration for the Bulldogs. With that win, Judge will take over first place in the region while the Bears fall to second. Bear River takes on Ben Lomond next Friday at 7 p.m.-Ajay Salveson
