Raiders reach 20 wins with rout of Bulldogs


MERIDIAN — Clarkdale get much needed win against Lamar.


    It was clear coach Robert Holladay and the Clarkdale Bulldogs needed a win Tuesday night. The Bulldogs played like a team determined to win, overcoming several late charges while taking down Lamar 62-52.

    “This is a big win for these guys, because we have been on a bit of a skid lately,” Holladay said. “I think this win will build confidence for us. Hats off to the team, because they were able to play hard for four quarters, and I'm just proud of them.”

    The Bulldogs were led on the night by Derias Croft, Henry Scott and Daniel Cameron, who scored a combined 49 points for Clarkdale on the night.

    “When we are all clicking, it's unreal,” Croft said. “The crowd gets into it, and it is just intense.”

    The Bulldogs certainly had their share of close moments. After building a double-digit lead in the second half, Lamar battled back to cut the lead to 53-50 with three minutes left in the fourth quarter.

    However, Cameron would end the threat on the Bulldogs next possession , as he hit a crucial three-pointer to extend the lead to 56-50 and spark a 7-0 run to sink the Raiders.

    The win moves Clarkdale to 2-11 on the season, but more importantly it provides the Bulldogs with a chance to build into the remainder of the season.

    “We can most definitely build off of it,” Croft said. “We just got to continue to play hard and keep what we got going here. We just got to keep it going and be repetitious.”
