At Rexburg, the Madison High School boys basketball team ended 2019 with a 69-65 win over Bonneville in what head coach Travis Schwab called a good game for fans of offense.

Carson Johnson had 32 points, including seven 3-pointers, for Bonneville while Taden King had 32 points for Madison, which played at Madison Junior High and wore old uniforms as part of the team’s annual ‘Throwback Night.’

Schwab said after entering the fourth quarter with the game tied 44-44, the Bobcats went up by nine points but the Bees kept chipping away.

“They’d score and we’d score,” Schwab said. “We missed three straight one and one shots to end the game. I was really impressed with Bonneville’s grit and just how hard they played. I was proud of our kids for being able to outlast them there at the end.”

Caleb Stoddard added 12 points for Bonneville (4-4), which hosts Idaho Falls on Friday. Mark Williams added 10 points for Madison (6-3), which hosts Sky View, Utah, the same night.
