BONIFAY — Much to the delight of their many adoring and exceptionally supportive fans, the Holmes County High School Blue Devils defeated the Mariana High School Bulldogs with a score of 60-37 on Friday, Jan. 25 in Varsity Basketball, though the Junior Varsity suffered a defeat with a score of 56-23.

The Blue Devils’ Varsity team started the game aggressively, hardly allowing the Bulldogs to catch up and ending the first period with a score of 21-11.

The Bulldogs tried to retaliate in the second period but failed to catch up with the period ending in a score of 32-23.

The Blue Devils pushed hard in the third period, leaving very little room for the Bulldogs to maneuver and ended the period with a score of 47-29.

The Bulldogs started to make an aggressive comeback but soon fell way to the Blue Devils’ tenacity in the last period.

During the last 20 seconds of the game the stands were in an uproar as the Holmes County Blue Devils took the victory with a final score of 60-37.

“We played okay, but we’re still not where we need to be,” said Head Coach of the Blue Devils Poe White. “There was a lot more passing of the ball and ball play but there’s still room for improvement. We’ve got two more games and I hope to reach our peak before we reach district.”
