Thomson lost its first game of the season to Washington County recently, but bounced back to defeat Swainsboro in region play.
On Jan 14, the Bulldogs dropped a 53-43 game at Washington County.
“We were only able to hit 43 points, and you won’t defeat many teams scoring 43 points,” said Michael Thomas, THS head coach.
Thomas said a 10-day gameless stretch was not an excuse for the Bulldogs’ low output, but its just the way it was.
“We missed shots that we normally make, and I am thinking had we been on our regular game rotation, we would have done better,” said Thomas. “They (Washington County) kept things slowed down. That’s how they play.”
The Bulldogs got in foul trouble with one player fouling out and another picking up three fouls early in the game.
Felton Hatcher led Thomson with 15 points and Malique Gibbons contributed 12.
