WYNOT — The Wynot Blue Devils opened their 2019-2020 basketball season with a trip to Bloomfield to take on the Bees.

Meanwhile, Bloomfield got eight points from Braden Eisenhower and seven points from Dade Davis along with balanced scoring as the Bees raced to a 19-3 early lead.
Wynot would show some signs of life in the second quarter with four points each from Garrett Lange and Anthony Haberman but Bloomfield would minimize the damage with three pointers by Dade Davis and Cody Bruegman as the Bees lead 31-17 at the half.
Wynot tried to rally from long range in the second half but they went 1-20 from behind the arc for the game.
