The Bulldogs opened their season against the Kimball Cubs on Tuesday, Nov. 30, by nearly doubling the CubsÕ score in a 45-24 win.

The excitement and nervousness showed as the game started out slow. The girls had a tough time getting their offense started, but played good defense allowing only four points in the first quarter.

In the second quarter, the tempo was the same. The Bulldogs scored the first nine points of the quarter to build a 17-4 lead, but the Cubs came back to score the last six points, leaving the Bulldogs with a 17-10 lead at halftime.

The Bulldogs picked it up in the second half and outscored the Cubs 28-14, with 19 points coming in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs applied the 2-3 match-up zone that they had been working on. It proved successful as the Cubs highest quarter total was seven points.

Leading the Bulldogs was Tanya Lieser with 24 points, 14 rebounds, and eight blocked shots. Carin Frenchick and Steph Krupke contributed eight and seven points, respectively. Krupke was also the steal leader with six.

Also, congratulations to Pat Deegan on his first win as the varsity head coach!

The Bulldogs hosted BBE last night. They will play at St. Cloud Cathedral on Friday.
