The rivalry between Dowling and Valley runs deep, anytime the two teams meet, regardless of sport, it’s a big deal. 

Friday Dowling traveled to West Des Moines to challenge the Tigers on the Basketball court for the second time this season.  Both teams were on fire after halftime, literally the gym was evacuated because a popcorn machine caught on fire.

When they resumed play the Maroons came out fighting, not enough to stop a smokin’ Peter Jok who had 37 points in the game.

Tigers win 78-67.
