Bulldogs take third place

January 14, 2014

A 21-0 run in the second sparked the Altus High Bulldogs to a 50-47 victory over Cache, Saturday in the third place game of the Chickasha Tournament.

Early in the fourth quarter the Bulldogs were trailing 33-23. Then came the 21-0 run that put the Bulldogs on top 44-33.

A desperation shot by Cache at the buzzer was not good and Altus held on for a 50-47 victory.

J.J. Ward led Altus with 12 points.

The Bulldogs (6-2) will travel to Anadarko before hosting Cache on Friday.
