The South Bulldogs would love to be champions of the City League division that bears its name.

The Bulldogs, under head coach Ramon Spears, a former assistant of the Bates brothers Michael at Africentric and Jason at Walnut Ridge, have made strides in just three years.

South has gone from one win all the way to 13 wins and currently third in the City South behind Eastmoor Academy and Africentric after Friday night’s 60-50 win over Walnut Ridge.

The key to the game was the Scots only scoring five points in the second quarter. Single-digit quarters have hampered the Scots all year.

Christopher Byrd and Aaron Mullins led the Bulldogs with 14 and 12 points respectively.

Rob Wheelwright led the Scots with 15.

South is 13-5, 7-5 while the Scots drop to 10-8, 6-6 good for fifth place in a division that they’ve dominated the past two years.

FRed Hardgrove's 3-pointer keeps Scots unbeaten ( photo)

The last time the Scots and Warriors got together at Eastmoor High, Walnut Ridge ran away from the opening tap and were never headed as their height, depth and talent took over.

In the rematch Tuesday night at Walnut Ridge, neither team could run away from each as the game was a close affair.

Point guard Fred Hardgrove hit a three-point shot with 27 seconds left and kept the Scots unbeaten with a 47-41 win over the Warriors in the City South Division.

Hardgrove scored 11 on the night.

Walnut Ridge is 15-0, 11-0 and has just about wrapped up another title in the South.

The Scots had to claw all night against the pesky Warriors who led until the end.

Hardgrove’s shot gave the Scots their first lead.

Backup point guard Isaiah Brooks canned two free throws with 17 seconds remaining to seal the Walnut Ridge comeback. Brooks scored 13 points in the game.

The Warriors led 18-6 at the end of the first quarter. But Walnut Ridge came back in the second quarter and the halftime score was 24-17 Eastmoor Academy.

At the end of three quarters, the game got tighter as Eastmoor led by only 37-33.

In the fourth quarter, the Scots were not about to disappoint the home crowd as they took control and held the Warriors without a field goal and only four points total.

The Warriors drop to 10-6 overall, 7-4 in the South.
