Lady Bulldogs fare well at scrimmage

This article submitted by Laura Mages and Courtney Karsch on 9/1/98.

On Monday, Aug. 17, the Paynesville Bulldogs competed against teams from Litchfield, BBE, Eden Valley, Maple Lake and Dassel-Cokato.

It was a scrimmage and the games were not recorded. The Bulldogs did fairly well for their first competition. Like all beginning teams, there is still a need of practice on covering, hitting, blocking, and most of all, communi-cation. The best part about the scrim-mage was we knew what to work on as far as chemistry with the teammates. Our team, as well as others, had a great time competing with others, even though we didnít keep score.

On Friday, Aug. 28, the Lady Bulldogs had to get up early and travel to Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City (ACGC) for another scrimmage. We scrimmaged for a good hour. In that hour, we had good and not so good plays. Towards the end of the scrimmage, the communication between players improved and their playing intensity was up to their expectations.

The team had its first official game yesterday, Sept. 1, against Sauk Centre, which was played at Paynesville. Those results will be in next weekís paper.

On Thursday, Sept. 4, Paynesville will travel to Litchfield for a conference game and on Tuesday, Sept. 8, head to Long Prairie-Grey Eagle for a matchup.
