Bulldogs Fall In 4th District Semi-Finals

Austin Shewmaker gets to the rim in the Semi-final round of the 46th District tournament Tuesday.

The Bulldogs were unable to keep their historic season alive Tuesday night falling to the Colts of West Jessamine 62-46, in the opening round of the 46th District tournament.


It was back and forth early in the first quarter, as the two teams exchanged the lead seven times in the first three and half minutes of play.


A turnover by the Bulldogs with 4:30 to play in the first quarter left the door open for West Jessamine to take a two possession lead, 11-7. The Colts ended the first quarter with an eight to two run taking a 10 point lead into the second quarter, 19-9.


“They just picked up their aggressiveness and didn’t allow us to penetrate into the lane,” said Burgin head coach Don Irvine. “It was obvious early we weren’t going to get to go to the foul line. We are used to going 20 to 25 times a game and only went 11 times tonight.”
