Burgin couldn’t overcome a slow start offensively and 14 three-pointers made by the Pendleton County Wildcats Saturday afternoon, in a 63-34 loss.
The Bulldogs trailed 10-1 early in the first quarter and the rest of the quarter didn’t get much better, as they were only able to score four points to trail, 17-4, after one period.
“We are going to have to come out with a lot better intensity. One of the things we talked about in the locker room was coming out more aggressive on the offensive end. I think we settled for a few jumpers at the beginning. So we are going to have to look to attack the ball and move the ball a little bit quicker on offense,” said Burgin Head Coach Brian Kirk.
The Bulldogs offense got a spark from junior Chase Hale in the second half. Hale scored eight of his team-high 13 points in the quarter.
