In girls action the young Lady Bulldogs made a strong showing, but came up short.
The Lady Bulldogs fell to the Lady Tigers 48-26. This season looks to be a season of growth for the young Lady Dogs, but with the young and upcoming talent the future looks bright for LaFayette girl’s basketball.
The Bulldog boys varsity team capped the night off in Tiger town.
It was a great game, with both teams going back and forth and neither team ever gaining a sizable advantage over the other.
It was a very intense game and by the time the game reached its last few seconds the Bulldog fans were livid due to a technical foul called by the officials late in the fourth quarter.

The atmosphere was so tense that the referees stop game play and cleared the gymnasium. That’s right, both fan bases were removed from the game before it was over. Tallassee would make the technical free throw and send the game to overtime.
In overtime the Bulldogs stood strong regaining their composure and walked with a 49-45 victory over the Tigers.
