Layton Shelton and Easton Vanover scored 14 points apiece to lead the Slidell Greyhounds to a 71-68 victory over No. 7 Graford Tuesday.

Five Greyhounds finished in double figures. Shelby Johnson had 12, Brady Vanover 11 and Hunter Horner 10.

Easton Vanover drained a pair of 3-pointers in the second quarter to help Slidell (3-4) to a 35-29 halftime lead. The Greyhounds held on the rest of the way. Shelton scored eight in the final quarter to secure the victory.

Slidell coach Casey Pierce said it was a needed win.

“We’ve played well considering our tough schedule, but it hasn’t equaled wins early on,” Pierce said. “I’m proud of our kids. They overcame a lot [against Graford]. We’re still learning some new principles and concepts. It’s a new team with a new coach, but hopefully we can build on this and keep moving forward.”
