The No. 7 Forgan Lady Bulldogs continued their string of dominant victories Tuesday night, overwhelming an overmatched Turpin Lady Cardinals squad 59-12.
“I did think defensively we did a lot better tonight,” Lady Bulldogs head coach Brett Trippet said.
That defense held Turpin without a point in the second quarter, and only allowed five points the entire second half. The Lady Cardinals did not do themselves any favors making only 1-of-11 from three-point range and 5-of-33 from the field. Forgan meanwhile, took 57 shots — 24 more than the Lady Cardinals — to show their dominance on the boards.
Forgan was in charge throughout, leading 20-7 after one, 29-7 at the half, and 47-10 after three, on their way to a 59-12 romp.
Turpin head coach Chad Fox knew this game would be a tough mountain to climb.
“We are already short-handed, and Dakota (Moon) was sick as well,” Fox said. “We struggled offensively with not much of an inside game, and when you play an extremely good ball club like Forgan, you can’t expect to compete when you only score twelve points.”
Both squads will play next in the first round of the Oiltown Classic in Woodward Thursday. Forgan will take on Waynoka at 10 a. m. and Turpin will play Mooreland at 7 p. m.
