By Brandon Park
The Morgan County High School junior varsity Bulldogs opened region competition last week with a win over the Jackson County junior varsity Panthers by a score of 46-32.
“We finally played a complete game,” Head Coach Jonathan Nelson said. “From the tip to the finish, we continued to play better as the game went on.”
The Dogs scored first, and led the entire game, outscoring the Panthers by 10 points in the third quarter, a quarter in which Nelson said his team tends to loose a step.
Fred Williams once again led the Dogs, racking up a double-double. Williams ended the game with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Cody Lovin and A.J. Smith added 10 points and three steals apiece in the victory.
“A.J. Smith did a great job coming off the bench and giving us that energy we needed,” Nelson said. “Fred and Cody also played well. Cody’s handling the ball well and setting up guys for shots. Fred had a double-double, which is impressive for a jv game. We look forward to practicing and gelling as a team.”
The Dogs were scheduled to face region opponent Hart County on Tuesday at home. They will then travel to Hart County on January, 9 for a second consecutive meeting.
