WOODVILLE — De’Arius Griffin led Natchez High with a game-high 21 points as the Bulldogs rolled to a 73-36 win over the Wilkinson County High School Wildcats Tuesday night.

And the Bulldogs forced several turnovers throughout the game, which led to easy lay-ups and slam dunks.
Keylan Wimley finished with 16 points and Lorenzo Smith contributed with 13 points for Natchez High.
Natchez High (2-0) plays host to South Pike at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Wilkinson County plays at Amite County at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
