Lady Dawgs…………..49


Avenging a 12-point loss from earlier in the season, the Clay County Lady Bulldogs topped the Friendship Christian Lady Commanders here in Celina Saturday night by a score of 49-35 on senior night.

Outscoring their opponent 23-10 in the first half, the Lady Bulldogs held a good margin throughout the game to take the 14-point win.

Sydney Roach had a game-high 18 points in the victory and senior post Rachel Burnette scored 11 in her final home game.

Allie Brown added eight, Casey Cooper and Mackenzie Hamilton both scored four, and Mattie Monroe and Emma Ogletree had two each.



Coming off big wins over Jackson County and Clarkrange, the Clay County Bulldogs faced highly-ranked Friendship Christian here last Saturday night, but the game was a “no-contest” match-up as the Commanders flexed their muscles for the 16-point victory by a score of 62-46.

Even though emotions were running high because the contest was the final home game for seniors Trent Boles, Matt Copeland, Dylan Birdwell, and Jon Smith, the visiting team jumped out to a 22-6 lead after one and never looked back as the Bulldogs struggled to find the basket the entire game.

The contest was never in question as Friendship led by 21 at the break and both teams cleared their benches in the second half.

DAWGS (46)-Corey Hamilton 10, Trent Boles 9, Jake Edwards 7, Dylan Birdwell 6, Dusty Birdwell 4, Austin Cherry 2, Curt Cherry 2, Matt Copeland 2, Eddie Roach 2, Dylan Carter 2.
