FARMINGTON -- The Sikeston Bulldogs won a come-from-behind thriller on the road Tuesday night, as they slipped past the Farmington Knights 77-75.

The Bulldogs (13-2), who currently holds the no. 8 ranking in the Class 4 poll, got off to an extremely slow start Tuesday. The Knights, who only recently fell out of the state polls, put Sikeston on their heels early in the contest, jumping out to a 20-10 lead six minutes into the game.
