KILLDEER -- Killdeer senior Austin Dufault scored the 1,000th point of his career Tuesday night but it didn't make much of a difference the way top-ranked Watford City was shooting.

Senior center Justin Shipman scored 23 points and pulled down 13 rebounds and the Wolves shot 55 percent from the field to defeat the Cowboys 84-46.

"They really came out of the gates well and shot well," Killdeer coach Rich Dufault said.

Austin Dufault scored 21 points and got eight rebounds despite being chased around the court by as many as three Watford City players at once.

Rich Dufault was impressed with the Wolves, who just this week moved into Class B's No. 1 spot.

"They have size, they run the floor very well and they shoot well," he said. "They have a nice group, they're athletic."

Kevin Sanford added 15 points and hit three 3-pointers for the Wolves, who improved to 5-0 on the season.

"They're good," Rich Dufault said. "They've been playing together for a while."
