The LaFayette Bulldogs came back from their Christmas break with a three night back to back on the basketball court at the Bulldogs house.

January 5th, The Bulldogs and BTW meet up. BTW 67 Bulldogs 56.
January 6th, On 1/6, the LaFayette varsity basketball team lost their home non-conference game against Dadeville (AL) by a score of 55-52.
January 7th, The Bulldogs host Lanett to battle the Panthers in a 2A Area 7 contest.

It was a packed house Friday night at the Bulldog Gymnasium as the Bulldogs set to battle with region rival the Lanett Panthers.

The Bulldogs season has been up and down so far and they are still trying to find their identity as a team. With big region implications on the line, the Dogs were hoping to get a victory over the visiting Panthers. But things didn’t quite turn out like the Bulldogs anticipated as the Panthers eased past the Dogs by a score of 61-47.

This was the first meeting between the two teams this season. LaFayette will have a chance to avenge this loss later this month when they travel down Highway 50 East to face the Panthers in Lanett at the Panthers Den on January 21.
