The momentum continued for the Bulldogs in 2nd half where they were able to stretch the lead to 8 heading into the 4th quarter. DMC made a run from 10 down in the 4th to take the lead with 1:30 left to go but the Bulldogs took the lead right back on the next possession and eventually finish the game with a win.
