Forgan 63, Gage 29 (girls)

The Forgan Lady Bulldogs make quick work of the overmatched Gage Lady Tigers in their first round matchup.

Forgan jumped out to a 17-6 lead in the first, and led 28-10 at half. The Lady Bulldogs outscored Gage 18-11 in the third and 17-8 in the forth to win by 34.

Nikki Taylor was the Lady Bulldogs top scorer with 22 on 8 of 15 shooting from the field and 6 of 10 from the free throw line.

KaDawn McReynolds added 13, Macie Bryer 10, and Kenzi Taylor 9.

“I thought KaDawn and Macie did a good job attacking the basket,” Lady Bulldogs coach Brett Trippet said. “We need more of that from our guards.”

Forgan (12-5) will face Beaver (7-10) in the second round today at 6:30.

Forgan 74, Woodward JV 28

For Forgan, a team that could most likely handle the Woodward varsity, taking on their junior varsity (a last minute fill-in) was not much of a contest.

“I thought we played real well,” Bulldogs coach Todd Kerr said. “They were young, but quick and athletic so I was pleased with how we were able to pressure and trap.”

Forgan shot out of the gate, and led 27-5 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter was played much tighter, but the Bulldogs still led comfortably, 39-16.

“They used a delay game on offense, and tried a triangle a two on defense,” Kerr said. “It’s good for us to see those kind of things so we get in-game experience against as many things as possible.”

Forgan outscored the ‘baby’ Boomers 35-12 in the second half to win by 46.

Forgan was 23 of 37 from 2-point, and 4 of 10 from 3-point.

Jake Regier and David Stout each scored 13 for the Bulldogs; Chandler Bryer added 13, Dalton Lemieuz 10, and Demetrius Alston 9.

The Bulldogs (17-1) will take on Beaver (11-5) today at 5:15.
