First win of season shows promise

After suffering a 49-24 setback on the road to S.A. Jefferson in the first game of the season, the Bandera Lady Bulldogs bounced back last Friday night with a hard fought, 67-50 victory at home over the Somerset Lady Bulldogs. Making big strides on the offensive side of the ball, Bandera scored in double digits for each quarter while limiting Somerset to single digit scoring in the middle two quarters.

Somerset came out and ran Bandera up and down the floor in the first quarter, taking a 16-14 lead to start the second. Coach Casey Botos fired her team up during the break between periods and Bandera forged back to take a 25-24 lead, way, way late in the second, thanks to some tightened up defense on Bandera’s part.

The third quarter saw Bandera still playing that tight defense while crashing the boards on both ends of the floor and scoring 17 points to extend their lead to 42-32 going into the fourth.

Somerset surged in the final period, scoring their game high 18 points but Bandera had found their scoring touch, adding 25 points to get the win and move to 1-1 on the young season.

Bandera was led by Presli Mooney, who led the team with 12 points and 15 boards. New move-in player, Abbey Wisdom and Kendra Shaw also added 12 points each to the Bandera total. 

The Lady Bulldogs next home game will be on Monday, Nov. 20, against 5A Medina Valley.

Games times are scheduled for tipoff at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. as schools are off for Thanksgiving that week.
