Whether they like it or not, the Mexico varsity boys' basketball team have been forced to become road warriors this season.

While part of that is because several home games were postponed because of weather, the Bulldog's have also been starting to gel as a unit, a fact that was never more prevalent than it was Tuesday when the squad downed Brookfield 69-53 at the Macon Tournament.

"We played really good defense in the second and fourth quarters, holding them to eight points in each quarter," said coach Nick Bradford.

Heading up the cause for the Bulldog's was Tyler Spargo with a team-high 14 points, Isaac Troy had 12 points and scoring 11 was Jai Lawson. Cameron Holman also had eight points and adding five points each were Jonathan Grubb and Chris Campbell.

Mexico, 5-8 overall, next faces Father Tolton in the second round of the Macon tourney on Thursday at 8 p.m. and the finals take place Jan. 21 at 8 p.m.
