AMBER — Brett Cunningham accumulated game-high marks in scoring (18) and rebounds (10) Friday night as Dale trimmed Amber-Pocasset 39-35.
Cole Seaborn added 11 points and four assists as Dale upped its record to 3-0.
Pirate Reid Davenport chalked up four steals and took two charges.
Dale trailed 20-18 at the intermission but took a 28-25 lead into the final quarter.
The Pirates prevailed despite going just 7 of 18 from the charity stripe.
“Ampo got off to a fast start hitting shots,” Dale coach Jeff Edmonson said. “We played hard to get the lead back and played hard the second half. If we had hit our free throws, we could have had a double-digit lead.”
Dale will take a Thanksgiving break before resuming its season, Tuesday, Dec. 29 at Okarche.
