Veritas used a 21-point third quarter to surge past Baldwin, 68-65, Monday night at BHS.

The Bulldogs took a 19-16 advantage in the opening period, leading by a 31-30 margin at the half. The Eagles then had to hold off Baldwin in the final period to claim a narrow victory between two area schools.

Senior Trey Huslig led the way for Veritas with a game-high 23 points on 7-of-18 shooting. Tucker Flory added 20 points, going 8-for-13 from the floor. In a losing effort, Monroe Morgan led the Bulldogs with 19 points. Matthew Garber and Nathan Cessna added 17 and 10 points, respectively.
