Bulldogs headed to final four in Lakeland

The Marianna Bulldogs are headed to the final four.  They did so in convincing fashion, posting a 64-51 win over Pensacola Catholic last Tuesday to advance to regionals in Jacksonville Friday.  Friday proved to be a walk in the park for the Bulldogs as they handed Raines a 64-46 loss and diminished their hopes of another state title.  The Vikings had titles in 1991, 2003, and 2004, but the Bulldogs put the brakes on a chance at a 2017 title for Raines.

Against Catholic, Anton Williams was the workhorse, posting 26 points in what was his best game of the year and probably of his career at MHS.  He was unstoppable through in the second half, posting eight third-quarter points and 10 fourth-quarter points.  Jaeden Harley had 15 points in the Catholic victory.

The Bulldogs traveled to Jacksonville Friday to take on the Raines Vikings for a chance to make it to the final four.  They did so without their leading scorer from Tuesday night.  Anton Williams was not cleared to play due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.  The team rallied around each other and got the job done.  

The Bulldogs did it in dramatic fashion with the downtown shots, 10 of them to be exact.  Jaeden Harley led the Bulldogs with 14 points.  Jaeden Harley and Nick Pollocks quickly found holes in Raines pressure game and made them pay.  Harley, Werlean Pollock, Stefon McMillian, and Deontre Rhynes all were in double digits for the Bulldogs.

Marianna was scheduled to travel to Lakeland to take on Calvary Christian of Ft. Lauderdale at 2 p.m. Wednesday.  The Bulldogs departed MHS Tuesday morning at 8 with a police escort out of town.  Check the Jackson County Times website for updates on the game.
