Jayton Malone’s 17 points were not enough Tuesday night as Alvord fell to Forestburg 61-56.

The Bulldogs were unable to overcome a 29-22 halftime deficit in the loss.

Three Longhorns ended the night in double figures, helping Forestburg to a 23-point third quarter. The Longhorns knocked down 11 3-pointers in the win, getting hot from beyond the arc.

Tanner Baker finished with 15 points for Alvord.

The loss drops Alvord to 14-7 on the season. The Bulldogs opened District 11-2A play on Friday against Chico.

SLIDELL 69, PRAIRIE VALLEY 57

Slayton Pruett scored a game-high 22 points as the Slidell Greyhounds beat Prairie Valley 69-57 to extend their winning streak to five games.

Slidell took a 32-23 lead into halftime and fended off a second half rally from the Bulldogs, rebounding well and scoring points in transition to get the win.

“This was a hard-fought game on the road,” said Slidell coach Casey Pierce. “Prairie Valley shot the ball well despite what I thought was good defense by our guys.”

Easton Vanover was the Greyhounds’ second leading scorer with 13 points. Hunter Horner poured in 11 points.

Slidell moved to 17-5 on the season.
