The Lady Bulldogs managed to add 16 themselves, keeping the advantage at 26-21.

In the third quarter, Healdton gave itself some breathing room with a 15-9 run, before finishing the game off in the fourth with 26 points.

It’s not often a sequel is better than the original.

For the No. 18 Healdton Bulldogs though, Thursday night was the complete opposite.

Less than a week after enduring a close six point contest against the Fox Foxes in the Bulldog Bash finals, the Bulldogs made things easier with a 15-point victory.

The loss is the first time this season Fox has been on a losing streak after starting the season 15-0.

Fox led after the first quarter 15-13, before a 15-13 second quarter in favor of Healdton gave them a slim 28-27 advantage going into the break.

An 11-9 third quarter in favor of the Bulldogs kept them in front, before Healdton sealed the game with a 26-14 fourth quarter run.

John Scott led Healdton (17-2) with 20 points, followed by Denton Miller with 16 points and Case Tolliver with 11 points.

Fox was led by Jimmy Bivings with 26 points, followed by David Martin with 11 points.

Jacob Dart added eight points in the game for the Foxes.

Healdton will be at home this evening taking on Ryan, where a victory will mark win No. 100 for head coach Mike Worsham as a member of the Bulldogs.

Meanwhile, Fox (15-2) is at Springer beginning at 8 p.m.
