With only 3 points to their credit in the third quarter, Medora gave up an additional 25-points to Orleans and the Bulldogs then controlled the outcome and scored an additional 40 points in the fourth quarter.
When the final second ticked off the scoreboard, the Bulldogs walked off the court with a 47-point differential and claimed a final score of 74 to 27.
Leading in scoring for the Bulldogs was Jacob Smith with 16 points, next was Tyler Atchison with 8 points, Jerry Mathers claimed 7 points, and both Ken Stewart and Alex Williams scored 6 individual points for Orleans.
