Going into the second half of the game the Bulldogs felt like they had a chance at winning. They started to play like they were the first quarter of the game. “I think that we played well, but we came out flat,” freshman Alyssa Burn said.

The team went 20 for 43 for field goals, Monthei went 4 for 7, 57%, Clancy went 5 for 10, 50%.

The lady Bulldogs fought to the end and ended with a score of 45-32. “I think we did well because the stats were spread out pretty good,” Senior Precious Delos Santos said.

Mara Clancy lead the team with 12 points, following behind her was Tyra Fletcher who scored 9. Delos Santos lead with 5 assists following her was Kelsey VanDaele and Mara Clancy with 4.
