SAVANNAH — The Beach Bulldogs showed Bradwell Institute why they are the top dogs in Region 3-AAAAA with an 86-52 win Tuesday night at the Dawghouse.

The Tigers had it close early in the first quarter, with the score tied at 6 with 5:49 remaining.
However, 42 seconds later the Bulldogs went on a 12 point run to take an 18-6 lead.
The Bulldogs used their size and athleticism to take control of the game and earn the win.
They not only dominated inside the paint but also proved they could shoot, sinking five 3-pointers.
Bradwell also had a hot hand from downtown, draining eight 3-pointers.
Beach delighted the crowd with three slam dunks, including an  alley-oop, that had the nearly sold-out gymnasium on its feet.
The Tigers will try to get back on track tonight as they travel to Garden City to play Groves (6-7, 2-4). Tip-off is 8:30 p.m.
The Rebels used some hot shooting to steal the first contest on Dec. 8, 62-59 at Bradwell.
