This article submitted by Josh Jones & Ryan Hemingson on 2/10/98.

On Thursday, Feb. 5, the Paynesville Bulldog boyís basketball team lost to a very tough Annandale team, 45-38, who will probably be seeded number one in the sub-section.

With only three minutes remaining, Paynesville led by nine points. Paynesville started slipping by missing a couple of easy buckets and not making their free throws. Annandale started scoring in this quarter and with a couple of controversial calls, that could have went either way, Paynesville ended up losing the game in the last minute or so.

Annandale: 8 11 4 22 - 45

On Tuesday, Feb. 3, the Bulldogs hosted the Melrose Dutchmen. The Bulldogs were out for revenge since they lost to the Dutchmen once already this season and the Bulldogs won 63-52.
