The backcourt duo were great again in the second half and were joined by great play by Seth Fitzgerald, who was working hard getting to the rim and hitting the offensive glass as the Eagles pulled away and claimed the win 59-47.


Josh Dixon led the way with 25 points.


Junior guard Caleb Jones was a bright spot for the Bulldogs and his playmaking ability helped keep his team in the game.
