Bulldogs up 10, but can’t hang on, lose to arch-rivals

By Pamela Holloway

In boys action, the Young Gunz of LaFayette High came out blazing.
The Bulldogs came out and gave the Panthers all they could handle and then some.
The Dogs or Young Gunz as I call them, were running and gunning from the tip-off.

The fast pace offense and pressure defense seemed to pay off for the Bulldogs in the first quarter, giving them a 17 -11 lead after one.

The second quarter was all gas, no brakes for the Bulldogs.

The Dogs high energy play and the exceptional play of new comer Antavious Woody(8th grade) would give them a 36-25 advantage at the half and Lanett would find themselves in unfamiliar territory trailing the Bulldogs.

In the third quarter it was nip and tuck for both LaFayette and Lanett with neither team being able to gain an advantage over the other.

The Bulldogs found themselves in good shape with a 45-35 lead going into the final period.

In the fourth quarter the pace slowed and the Lanett «Bigs» took over.
Anquavious Pollard and Manny Littles would go for a combined 18 points in the fourth quarter.
Littles had 10-points in the quarter and Pollard had 8-points.

Lanett would score a whopping 28-points in the fourth and snatch the victory right out the grasp of the Bulldogs, defeating the Dogs by a final score of 64-58.
Leading scorers for LaFayette were Corey Boston and Antavious Woody with 12-points each.

Markevious Moore added 10-points.

Anquavious Pollard led all scorers with 24-points.

Manny Littles poured in 18-points and Terrion Truitt finished the night with 10-points.
The Bulldogs will be on the road Tuesday, February 13, 2018, as they travel to play Collinsville.
