Girls have rough week, drop two

This article submitted by Nicole Orbeck on 12/17/96.

The Lady Bulldogs had a rough week, losing two home games. On Monday, Dec. 9, the Bulldogs hosted the New London-Spicer Wildcats and lost, 45-28.

Difficulty shooting and sloppy passing from both teams in the first quarter got the game off to a slow start.

Steph Tangen scored the first basket of the game and drew a foul to get things rolling. Tangen scored all but two of the first quarter points, which came from Amber Michaelis.

The Wildcats allowed only six points in the second quarter. Amanda Lieser sunk a three pointer, and Michaelis sunk one of her own the possesion after, to make the quarter's only six points.

The Bulldogs were sent to the locker room at halftime trailing by only four, 17-13.

Lindsay Lieser of the Wildcats lit it up in the third quarter, sinking back to back threes. The Wildcats held the Bulldogs to fifteen points in the second half of the ball game, as they scored sixteen of their own in the third, and twelve in the fourth.

The Bulldogs were led by Tangen, with eleven points, four rebounds and two steals.
