CENTERVILLE — The Bulldogs apparently took too long of a break over the holidays, as their play suffered and they lost 53-44 to the Neches Tigers on Friday.
Head Coach Geoff Hollis said that the team had not played since Dec. 17 and was extremely rusty, not playing well at all.
The Bulldogs were down 16-4 at the end of the first quarter, but fought back to a 28-18 deficit at halftime.
At the third, Neches led only by eight and fourth quarter (53-44) were pretty even.
“This definitely was a tough loss,” he said.
