Bulldogs fall in Delta by three

A 24-point fourth quarter wasn't enough for the Bulldogs Friday night at Delta.

The Bulldogs, who trailed the Delta Panthers (5-6) by eight points until the third quarter, staged a fourth quarter comeback that gave them in a one-point lead with only seconds to go.

The Panthers, though, weren't finished.

After intercepting an inbounds pass, and a quick lay up, Delta was able to complete their mission and finish off the 'Dogs 60-57.

"We came out flat in the first half, and let them get an eight-point advantage on us," Corlett said. "It was a tough first half for us, but I'm proud of the guys for not giving up and coming back in the fourth."

The Panthers started the game by holding the Bulldogs to nine points in the first quarter.

The second was nearly identical, with the 'Dogs again scoring nine points and the Panthers scoring 10.

The fourth quarter comeback, coupled with holding Delta to 18 points, was enough to make it tight into the final seconds, however, it was not enough.

Junior guard Pablo Loya lead the Bulldogs scoring with 20 points 12 of them coming from behind the three-point arc. Seniors Kyle Hazelwood and Mike Charchalis also contributed with 12 and 11 points, respectively.

"We played a hard second half, but it was just too late," Corlett said. "Their press really threw us off late in the game."
