Lady Bulldog almost win their first game, Dawgs fall to Arrington’s undefeated Yellow Jackets

The Toombs County Lady Bulldogs almost won their first game of the season. The Lady Dawgs led Jeff Davis, on the road, 9-5 after the first quarter, 17-15 at half and 30-29 after three quarters. However, the Lady Yellow Jackets tied the game at 38 at the end of regulation and they outscored TCHS 9-5 in overtime to win 47-43.

In the boys game former Toombs County coach Donnie Arrington coached against the Bulldogs for the fifth time since he took over at JD. His first two match ups were against Chuck Hill, a former player on his back-to-back region championship teams at Toombs County. This time Robert George was head coach. George, who is a first year assistant coach at his alma mater, took over the head coaching duties when head coach Ryan Lewis picked up two technical fouls in the third quarter of home game against Metter and he had to sit out the Montgomery County home game and the trip to Jeff Davis.

Growing up in Lyons, George’s best friend was Arrington’s youngest son Ryan. So, this was an added twist to the Region 2 game.
