LAUREL HILL — It was one of those games where Laurel Hill boys basketball coach had to simply shake his head and give credit where credit was due.

Paxton’s Dustin Geoghagan made his last appearance at the Laurel Hill gym Friday one to remember. The Bobcat senior guard hit eight 3-pointers on his way to a 32-point night against the Hoboes.

“Dustin Geoghagan had one of those games he will remember the rest of his life with this being his senior year,” Zessin said. “I thought Dustin came out and played a heck of a game on the offensive end as far as shooting the ball. The kid couldn’t miss.

“We knew he was going to be able do that. We tried to prepare for that, but he was still knocking them down.”

Geoghagan was in fact a one-man gang as he scored half of Paxton’s points as the Bobcats took a 64-29 win in District 1-1A play.

As a team, Paxton (7-2, 3-2) hit 14 3-pointers and only four twos on the way to the big win.

Bobcat coach Jeff Bradley said it was good to see Geoghagan come out of what had been a shooting slump of sorts.
