Fruitland’s boys basketball team would show just as much winning spirit on Wednesday as their female counterparts did the day before. When the Grizzlies showed up at Parma High to do battle for the penultimate game of the season, the Panthers found they didn’t stand a chance. After dominating the scoreboard during the first three quarters, Parma’s last-minute catch-up efforts were too little, too late. The Grizzlies took this game 57-34.
Hyrum Lindsey led Fruitland’s scoring, with 19 points and 11 rebounds on the books. Dylon Watson followed with 18 points and 7 rebounds, and Dawson McGraw was third with 10 points.
