MHSAA QUARTERFINALS: Columbus takes down Terry 41-38

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Terry Bulldogs are no stranger to the Big House in their second straight year in the Coliseum, but Columbus has held a commanding presence on the court all season. 

The score was low for the whole game, but one player shined. Columbus guard, Robert Woodard, led the game with 19 points. He wasn't alone, though. Casey Smith found a way to get open for big shots during several quarters. His jump shots and pace made the Falcons tough to play with in the first half.

Columbus came out quick in the second half, scoring 18 points in the third quarter.

But the Bulldogs nipped at the Falcons' heels, scoring 11 points. Coryell Mack was lethal from outside the paint. 

Columbus made it tough down the stretch for Terry, only allowing eight points in the fourth quarter and stifling the game overall. 

Columbus plays Starkville Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.
