The Dogs traveled to BBE looking for the taste of victory, which hadnÕt filled their mouths since the first game. The Bulldogs started out strong in the first half, leading by five points at the half. The lead, though, could have and should have been much larger.

The DogsÕ lead started to disappear little by little in the third quarter, as the Jaguars outscored Paynesville by two. The Bulldogs still led by three going into the fourth quarter.

In the fourth, BBE players hit numerous three-point shots to erase the BulldogsÕ lead, and the Jaguars quickly grabbed a double-digit lead. The Jaguars made nine three-pointers for the game, led by Zach Dingmann who had five treys and 22 points.

The Dogs tried to battle back but to no avail. The Jaguars nailed free throws and sank the Bulldogs into another loss.

Nate Martinson and Davis Hoekstra played great basketball coming off the bench. Their drive and fire helped the Bulldogs in the third quarter, but it wasnÕt enough for the whole game.

J.T. Koehn had 17 points for the Bulldogs while fighting off illness. T.J. Schultz added 10 points. Logan Louis had seven assists for Paynesville.
