The Burgin Bulldogs basketball team stayed within striking distance of the hosting West Jessamine Colts for most of the first-half Tuesday night in the 46th District Tournament. Over the final two minutes of the half fatigue set in as the Colts ended on a, 14-0, run to help them to a 26 point halftime lead, en route to an, 82-36, victory.
Burgin got behind 8-0 before getting their first points on a three-pointer by junior Chase Hale, with 5:34 remaining in the period.
“I told the kids to come out and enjoy the moment. This was a big time game and I think our guys were a little shaky at the beginning. But I thought we did a good job of settling down and gaining our composure after that start,” said Burgin Head Coach Brian Kirk.
Every time the Bulldogs pulled close a costly turnover haunted them, helping the Colts take a, 24-11, lead after the first eight minutes of play.
