The Paynesville Bulldog boyís basketball team lost to a very tough Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa team, 61-48, in the Region 5AA Sub-Section championship game in Howard Lake on Tuesday, March 10.

Paynesville had not played in the sub-section championship game since the 1980s. So this was a big accom-plishment for the team.

When the players entered the gym, they were in awe of all of the fans that were there. Indeed, this was an awesome basketball atmosphere.

BBE in the second quarter came out and hit a couple of threes that helped them get a six-point lead going into half time.

BBE started to pull away and Paynesville was unable to catch up at the end of the game. This was a tough loss for the Bulldogs.

BBE: 12 14 16 19 - 61
Paynesville: 9 11 11 17 - 48
