BAINBRIDGE – The Bainbridge-Guilford Bobcats hosted the Greene Trojans on Thursday, Feb. 17, for the completion of the MAC League tournament. The Bobcats secured a fifth place finish when they defeated Greene by a scoreline of 55-41.

“Good start and good fourth quarter, finished strong,” said B-G head coach Brad Aldrich Sr.

The Bobcats did in fact play a solid first period where they managed an 11-5 lead after the first eight minutes. The Trojans would find a spark on their offense in the second period – Greene's Erickson snagged seven of his eight points to help the visitors to 17-9 second period, subsequently taking the halftime score to 22-20 in favor of Greene.

Defending their home court, and ensuring momentum going into sectional play – the B-G boys went back to the drawing board at the half. With a new-found vigor to the team, the Bobcats returned to grab a 12 point third period before attacking the net in the fourth for a 23 point end to the game – a pace the Trojans couldn’t match, only scoring 19 in the second half.
