The Thomson Bulldogs improved to 5-0 with two wins last week.

On Friday night, Thomson defeated the Lincoln County Red Devils 66-61 in Lincolnton. The next night, the Dogs hosted the Washington-Wilkes Tigers and came away with a lopsided 88-46 win.

Thomson grabbed a 47-17 lead at halftime as three players hit double figure: JC Brooks, 22; Jahkiaus Jones, 11; and Lavonta Ivey, 11.

The big win saw Washington just beginning its season.

“It was their first game, as they have been involved in football,” said Thomson head coach Michael Thomas of the Class A Tigers. “We’ve had five games, so that made a big difference.”

“They were tall for a Class A school,” said Thomas. “They had several players that were in the 6’4” range. We led the whole game, but their height helped them a great deal.”

Jalen Moss led Thomson scorers with 19 points and Brooks finished with 13 points.

THS was strong from 3-point range as the team hit six treys.

Thomson traveled to Athens for a one-day Christmas tournament Monday. On Dec. 26, Thomson will host Warren County at 7:30 p.m., Butler visits THS on Dec 29 at 7:30 p.m. On Jan. 2, the Aiken Fighting Green Hornets will come to the Dog House for a 7:30 p.m. matchup.
