A fourth-quarter rally came up short for the Copperas Cove Bulldawgs basketball team in their 63- 56 loss to the San Angelo Central Bobcats in the District 8-6A opener Friday at Central’s Babe Didrikson Gym in San Angelo.
A 15-point Central lead was whittled down to just three points, 56-53, on a layup by Cove sophomore Quinton Ford but a 7-3 run by the Bobcats held off the surging Bulldawgs for the win.
The Dawgs held a slim 15-14 lead after the first quarter but the Bobcats’ second-quarter offensive output doubled that of Copperas Cove as the Cats took a 32-24 advantage into the break.
