Lady Dawgs pick up wins over RBS and Monterey


CLARKRANGE-The Clay County Lady Bulldogs headed into an early-season showdown with the defending district and state champ Lady Buffaloes here last night with a 5-0 record, including a pair of wins last week. 


The Lady Bulldogs kept their record perfect with an easy win over Red Boiling Springs and a tougher district win at Monterey. 


Last night’s contest was the last away game before the holiday break and following tournament action. The CCHS teams are scheduled to host Friendship Christian Friday night, Gordonsville on December 15 and Trousdale County on December 19 before the Christmas break.


The Lady Bulldogs are scheduled to participate in the Nera White holiday tournament in Lafayette December 28-30.

CCHS got off to a good offensive start and led 17-11 after one against their former district rivals. The Lady Dawgs led 28-20 at the half. 


Clay County put the game away with a 23-point explosion in the third quarter, pushing the lead out to 51-33.

CCHS led 11-9 after one, and 20-18 at intermission. The two teams warmed up a bit in the third quarter, during which the Lady Dawgs pushed their lead out to three.
