Corbin LoneBear hits a fade away jumper in the overtime period during the Coyote's 56-52 win over Roy-Winifred in Dodson last Friday.

The Coyote Den was full for the first home games for the Dodson Coyotes and Lady Coyotes on Friday, January 5.

The Coyotes were able to defeat the Roy-Winifred Outlaws 56-52 in overtime despite trailing for over three quarters in regulation.

"It was kind of going bad in the beginning," Corbin LoneBear told the PCN. "We stayed with them for a bit and in the third quarter they kind of took off."

Shaun Ball, who had 18 points, led Dodson in scoring. LoneBear had 12 points including a game-tying put back and four points in overtime.

Prior to the fourth quarter LoneBear had four fouls which messed with him during the game.

"Heads were down and my head was really down," LoneBear said. "I came back in the fourth."

LoneBear was happy with the turnout of the crowd.

"The crowd started helping us out and giving us momentum, getting our adrenaline up and we started making shots," LoneBear said.

David Jaynes had nine points, Tyrese Messerly and Caleb Ditmar each had seven points and Michael Jaynes had three.

LoneBear could only watch as his team clawed back from a ten point deficit. He was impressed by what he saw, taking notice of a two-for one opportunity that Ditmar capitalized on.

"He had two back to back layups," LoneBear said. "It was good."
