Mary Kate Myrick, Katie O'Neal and Megan O'Neal combined for 67 points to lead the Freeport Bulldogs in 77-45 win over the South Walton Seahawks Tuesday night in girls' varsity basketball action in Freeport.

Myrick and Katie each scored 25 points, while Megan picked up the other 17 points.

"They play hard, and they are fun to watch," he added.
