The last seven meetings between Harrisburg’s Bulldogs and Massac County’s Patriots have yielded the same results.

With four losses to the Dogs last year and three so far this year, you might think that one program is dominant, and that may very well be the case.

But the latest installment in this two year serial didn’t really prove the point either.

After watching the game last Friday night and looking at the stats, one still has to think that the Patriots can get over this sizeable hump.

They will get one more chance at the Dogs in the loaded Vienna regional if they can get by Vienna and Murphysboro.

Now for this latest tussle. On paper, this game, like so many of the others was close, but this one, unlike the others, wasn’t really.

Harrisburg shot 20 for 45 from the field for 44 percent while Massac shot 21 for 48 for 43 percent. Harrisburg shot 4 of 11 from behind the arc and Massac shot 6 of 20 from three-point land.

Harrisburg shot a lot more free throws than Massac, as Massac was whistled for twice as many infractions, but Harrisburg uncharacteristically made only 16 of 26 attempts.
