    Dover Longhorns vs. Taloga Tigers

It took Dover’s girls until their fi nal regular-season game to win their fi rst game last year.

This time around, the Lady Longhorns needed just three games to grab their fi rst victory.

Dover dominated from start to finish last Friday to handle Taloga in a 50-21 home victory.

Meadow Caldwell single-handedly outscored the Lady Panthers as the senior posted 25 points. Fourteen of those came in the first half as Dover got out to a 13-2 lead then extended it to 29-4 by halftime.

Yareli Obeso knocked down a pair of 3-pointers as part of the fi rst-half surge and finished her night with eight points. Caldwell didn’t slow down in the third quarter as she dropped another nine points. She had all but two of her points through three quarters. Emri Victor added 10 while Yazaret Gamez scored seven.

The win upped Dover’s mark to 1-2.

Caldwell buries 30 in Longhorns’ win

It was a great night for the Caldwell family as Joriaun helped the Dover boys to their second consecutive win.

A sophomore, Joriaun Caldwell is Meadow’s younger cousin.

He one-upped his cousin with 30 points as part of Dover’s 67-11 thumping of the Panthers.

Dover stretched its record to 2-1 with the victory.

Caldwell buried the Panthers in the first quarter as he scored 18 points, which proved to be enough to win the game. Dover’s lead was 35-6 after just one quarter.

The lead swelled to 49-6 by halftime before Dover put on the second-half brakes.

The Longhorns also got eight points from Kasen Harviston, all in the fi rst half.

Trenton Ritz, Lance Dunigan and Diego Lopez scored six apiece as nine different Longhorns managed to score.
