Four players score in double figures; record now 7-1.
The Stow-Munroe Falls High School Bulldogs came out running and never looked back as they defeated the visiting Barberton Magics, 64-48 Tuesday night at home. Stow's (7-1) up-tempo running style gave them a 15 to 8 lead after the first quarter, and 12-point lead at halftime (32-20). Though Barberton (6-3) equaled Stow's point production in the third quarter, they didn't match up well with the Bulldogs and faded in the fourth quarter, losing by 16.

The Stow-Hudson match ups will begin at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 4.
There are two important games many Stow residents will focus on tonight — the Stow-Munroe Falls High School boys' basketball games and the Sugar Bowl. Because the Ohio State Buckeyes are playing the Arkansas Razorbacks at 8:30 p.m. Jan. 4 in the Sugar Bowl, the Hudson and Stow School Districts decided to begin their games early tonight. The boys JV game will begin at 4:30 p.m. tonight and the varsity basketball game will begin at 6 p.m. at Hudson. The freshman game, which was originally scheduled for tonight, is moved to 6 p.m. Jan. 5 at Hudson. "All involved in the scheduling from Hudson and Stow-Munroe Falls agreed this was the best decision for game times," said Jacquie Mazziotta, a spokesperson for the district. Go Bulldogs!
