BETTENDORF -- In a battle between future conference rivals, it was Central DeWitt who got the upper hand on Thursday night, using a big fourth quarter to knock off Bettendorf, 50-40.

The Sabers were held to just 25 points through the first three quarters as they got themselves acclimated to the bigger, stronger and faster Bulldogs, but equaled that total in the final quarter, outscoring Bettendorf 25-14 in the fourth quarter en route to the win.

Central DeWitt (10-2) will move to the MAC next season from the WaMaC, and they showed the league what they're capable of doing here. The Sabers were led by Tucker Kinney, who had a game-high 15 points. Logan Paulsen added 14 in the win, all coming in the second half. Henry Bloom chipped in 12.

Bettendorf (4-8) was led by Lucas Hayes, the lone Bulldog in double figures with 11 points. Carter Furness added 9 points in the loss.
