Lady ‘Dogs lose
Before the holiday break, the Yellow Springs girls basketball team lay down for Dayton Christian in a conference defeat 48–37 on Dec. 21. The loss puts the Lady Bulldogs at 3–3 to start the new year.
The Lady Bulldogs were ready for the holiday to begin, and they played like it. Dayton Christian’s Lisa Webber put up 20 points for the game. Dayton took a 9–7 lead into the first quarter, and in the second quarter, the wheels fell off for the Lady Bulldogs. The Crusaders outscored the Bulldogs 22 to 5, to take a 31–12 half-time lead.
The second half was a little better for the Lady Bulldogs, who came out with a bit more fire, outscored Dayton Christian 25 to 17, and closed the gap to 10 points by the end of the third quarter. But the effort came up short. Yellow Springs gave up 25 turnovers. Amber Dudgeon led the team with 13 points, followed by Maryah Martin’s 10 points.
