The Hooker Bulldogs saw their season come to an end with a 50-31 loss at the hands of the No.5 Thomas Terriers.

Hooker was hopeful after taking a 13-12 lead in the first quarter, but Thomas took control with a 20-6 advantage in the second quarter to go up by double-digits (32-19).

“We stuck the ball in the hole early,” Hussey said. “We didn't much after that though, and our bench struggled too. Thomas shot it real well.”

An 11-4 advantage for the Terriers in the third quarter pushed the Bulldogs deficit to 20 heading into the fourth.

Hooker outscored Thomas 8-7 in the final period, but could not make up the big gap.

John Godfrey and Dayton Metcalf each finished with 9 to lead the Bulldogs offense.

“It was a good experience to play the quality of teams we did,” Hussey said. “Hopefully that is something we can take away from the experience that will prepare us. In part because of injuries we will have five starters returning next year so we're excited about the future.”

Hooker finished the season 6-18.
