He and Grant really shot the ball well.”Despite the win, Byerly was quick to point out that the Bulldogs still have a lot of work to do in order to get better, saying, “The guys played hard and did some things well. However, we are going to have to rebound better and start taking much more care of the ball, if we are going to be as competitive as we want to be.”The win takes the Bulldogs to 1-1 on the season.Borger will next take part in the Pampa Lions Club Invitational Tournament this weekend.
