Published 11:10 pm Monday, January 12, 2009

The Pike County Bulldogs came out on fire and didn’t let up all game, as they cruised to a 78-66 win over Headland on the road Monday night.

“We cam out and matched their intensity and we jumped out big,” PCHS head coach Doug Holland said. “This makes the area wide open and we now control our own destiny.”

The Bulldogs (11-5, 1-1 AHSAA Class 3A, Area 4) came at Headland strong and fast to open the game. Holland said the key to the win was the play down low in the post.

“They had no answer for us down low tonight,” Holland said. “That was our best game so far down low. We dominated them in the paint.”

Six Bulldogs scored in double digits and every player scored at least some points. Quay Bailey led the team with 14 points. Kendrick Jackson, Jarrod Wilson and Deandre Mathis each chipped in 12 points. Tevin Andrews had 11 points and Martellis Foster contributed 10 points.

Headland made a run at the Bulldogs in the second half, but PCHS held on for the area win.

Holland said the team will need to play well up and down the roster like they did Monday night in order for the team to have a shot at the area title.

“I was proud with how our guys one through nine played tonight,” he said.

The Lady Bulldogs and the B team Bulldogs lost, but scores were not available at press time.
