The Red River Lady Bulldogs notched their second playoff victory Monday night. They defeated the Lady Eagles of Rosepine 73 to 48 to advance to the third round of the Class 2-A basketball playoffs.
Rosepine put up a tough fight but were no match for the Lady Bulldogs. Coach Missy Antilley’s team steadily widened the gap quarter after quarter. Despite some sloppy play in the final quarter, and putting their substitutes on the court in the last few minutes, Red River held onto a 25-point lead.
The path narrows and become steeper Thursday night. The Lady Bulldogs will again have home court advantage for their 6:00 pm game. The Dawg Pound will be invaded by Ferriday, seeded 7th in 2-A. On Monday, Ferriday took care of Jonesboro-Hodge 55 to 50.
The boys team begins playoff competition on Friday night. The Bulldogs will host Kentwood. That game begins at 7:00 pm.
