The Marianna Bulldogs have had a phenomenal season going into last Thursday’s regional game against West Florida Tech with a 26-3 record. The Bulldogs have made it clear game after game this year that they want nothing less than a trip to the final four and a chance at state title.  The Bulldogs handed the visitors a 55-35 loss, ending the season for West Florida Tech and guaranteeing them yet another game.

Marianna outscored the Jaguars 13-8 in the first quarter with Stefon McMillian putting up two from the charity stripe and adding a pair from downtown for eight first-quarter points.  

In the second quarter, the Bulldogs turned it up a notch, posting 18 points while they held the Jags to just eight points. The Bulldogs took a 31-16 lead into the locker room and had the game under control.  

Coming out of the locker room after the half, the Bulldogs defense was even stronger, holding West Florida to just four points while their offense put up nine points.  With one period left to play, the Bulldogs were in control 46-20.  Coach Matt Anderson gave his bench some much deserved court time, with nine points going on the scoreboard.  West Florida’s attempt at a rally fell significantly short and Marianna advanced to regional semi-finals after a 55-35 win.

Marianna will host Pensacola Catholic Tuesday night with tip off scheduled for 7 p.m.  Doors will open at 6 p.m.   Principal Hunter Nolen and coach Matt Anderson invited everyone to come out and support the Bulldogs.
