Forgan's Kenzi Taylor kept scoring, so her Lady Bulldog teammates kept feeding her the ball in the post. Eventually Taylor ended with 32, and Forgan ended up with a 47-35 win over the Buffalo Lady Bison.
"Just had a lot of space, Lady Bulldogs coach Brett Trippet said of how Taylor scored 32. " We did a good job of passing. KaDawn (McReynolds), Gabby (Morales) , and Lindsey (Trippet) did a good job of feeding her the basketball in the post. They did a good job passing. She was aggressive and made the most of their opportunities."
And while Taylor's offensive stats stood out, it was Forgan's defense, especially in the first half that gave the Lady Bulldogs a cushion. Forgan had a 12-7 lead by the end of the first quarter, and outscored Buffalo 13-3 in the second to take a 15-point lead into the locker room.
We worked real well together especially in the first half," Trippet said. "We pressed a little and got a few turnovers. We did a good job of staying in front and not giving them any second shots."
The two teams played evenly in the second half on the scoreboard as Forgan worked the clock to protect the lead.
No.19 Forgan improves their record to 7-6, and will face county rival Beaver for the second time this season; this time at the Duster Dome in Beaver.
