Someone call animal control. Bulldogs are terrorizing the neighborhood.

The 8th-ranked Lady Bulldogs picked up two more wins this weekend over Laverne and Waynoka to stay perfect at 8-0.

And they are not just winning, they are winning big.

Over the last six games Forgan's average score is 59-32, almost a two-to-one scoring advantage.

The Lady Bulldogs latest victim was Waynoka, 61-26.

But Forgan's domination did not start in the first half, leading only 20-14 at the break.

"We started Christmas break a little early," said Lady Bulldogs coach Brett Trippet. "But we had a little talk at halftime and they played much better."

Only those in the locker room know what was said, but everyone in attendance could see the result. Forgan outscored Waynoka 31-2 in the third quarter.

The key to victory was forcing Waynoka into 30 plus turnovers.

Samantha Leisher hit five threes and totaled 16 points and freshman Kenzi Taylor tallied 16 in the paint. Lindsey Trippet scored 13 and Miranda Lopez added 11.

Friday night Kenzi Taylor was a force inside with 9 points, 12 rebounds, and five blocks, as Forgan defeated Laverne 42-30.

Laverne took an early lead and led 14-11 at the end of the first, but the Lady Bulldogs clamped down on defense, holding the Lady Tigers to only three points in the second to reclaim the lead for Forgan at half, 20-17.

Forgan widened the lead to nine and lead 33-24 heading to the final period.

Forgan won the fourth 9-6 to win 42-30.

Jaci McGill led the Lady Bulldogs with 15, and Miranda Lopez added 10.

Forgan is 8-0 heading into the Christmas break, and Coach Trippet is pleased but not satisfied.

"I think the thing I'm most pleased with is our scoring balance," said Trippet. "We have one averaging 9, two averaging 10, one averaging 11, and one averaging 11.5. I've never had a team with that balanced of scoring. We've still got a lot of room for improvement especially on defense."
