    The Braves scored the first 11 points of the game and led 16-4 at the end of the first quarter. They led by at least nine points the rest of the way.
    The Bulldogs hit just 2 of 11 field-goal attempts in the first quarter.
    “We just didn’t come out with enough intensity,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.  “The kids were flat to start the game.”
