Head coach Jacobi Couch and his Lady Bulldogs notched their first win last week, a 46-36 win over Pauls Valley.
“We needed that win for ourselves and to prove that we’re not the same as we used to be.
“We’re headed in the right direction. The scores don’t always depict the whole story of this team and how good we can be,” Couch said.
Scoring was led by Addi Lippel with 13 points and Rylee Beason with 10. Landri Bean added eight.
“We had quite a few girls step up for us. Scoring was evenly dispersed but we need to get Maddie (Manuel) more touches inside. That will make us better,” Couch said.
The Lady ‘Dawgs outscored Pauls Valley in the first three quarters thanks in part to Couch’s game plan.
“We planned to take away their best player. She didn’t score until the fourth quarter.”
Despite early foul trouble for Maddie Manuel, Lexington’s smaller lineup was able to push the gamepace.
Beason fouled out in the fourth, giving Pauls Valley some easy buckets, but it was not enough for them to pull back in the game.
“I’m proud of the way we played,” Couch said.
Tuesday night the Lady Bulldogs were in Washington. They are in Wynnewood starting today for the Savage Invitational. They play Crooked Oak at 3 p.m.
The Lexington Bulldogs dropped a 47-32 loss to Pauls Valley last Tuesday.
Despite strong scoring in the first quarter, Lexington had some mental lapses that led to the loss, according to head coach Tyler Thetford.
The Bulldogs had 18 turnovers and gave up more than 20 offensive rebounds.
“Pauls Valley just wanted it more,” Thetford said.
The coach was pleased with his team’s offensive looks, but the shots did not fall. And, defensively he knows they can play better.
Junior Zeke Faulkenberry led the team with 11 points. Ty Mixon had nine.
Tuesday night Lexington was in Washington for a District game with the Warriors.
Starting today (Thursday), the Bulldogs will be in Wynnewood for the Savage Invitational. They match up with 5A Santa Fe South in their first game at 2:30 p.m.
