Bulldogs drop two region games
By Jim Wallace

Thomson’s Daquan Smith swipes away a Hephzibah shot.
Even though the Thomson Bulldogs started out the region run with two losses, it is still early, according to THS’ head coach.
“It’s early, that’s what this tells me,” said Michael Thomas, Bulldog pack leader.
“I don’t know if we’ve started out region 0-2 before, but we’ve been kind of behind the 8 Ball before.”
The two region losses came last week in a 56-46 loss to the Baldwin Braves in Milledgeville Friday night and a 51-48 loss to the 2-10 Hephzibah Rebels Saturday night at The Dog House.
Thomas said the game came down to the Dogs giving the ball away.
“Turnovers were the key in the game and we just gave it to them,” Thomas said.
“Both teams were equal in half-court offense and defense. Rebounds were the same. But, we had 12 turnovers to their five.”
Zander Hamilton led Thomson with 18 points, and Malcolm Daniels hit 10 points for the Dogs.
Against the Rebels it was a possession-by-possession type game. Neither team could manage more than a three or four point lead.
“We shot some quick shots near the end,” Thomas mentioned.
“Had we worked the ball more, we could have gotten a better shot … It was only a three point game and we were only up by two points going into the fourth period.”
