The Millsap Lady Bulldogs put themselves in great position early versus the Breckenridge Lady Buckaroos Tuesday night at home, jumping out to an 11-5 first-quarter lead, while weathering a 12-10 second-quarter scoring advantage by the visiting team to retain their advantage through the half, 21-17.
However, the lead did not last, with Breckenridge going on an 11-2 run in the third quarter, eventually tying the contest up at 23-23 with 3:17 left in the period, before closing the frame with a 5-0 run to go up, 28-23.
Despite a resurgence by the Lady Bulldogs’ offense in the fourth (the team put up 15 points), the visiting squad did enough, recording 18 points of its own to hold on for the 46-38 win.
Five Lady Bulldogs found their way into the scoring column, led by freshman point guard Kelsey Ground with 15 points, with teammates Stormie Ingersoll (13 points) and Haylee Herring (seven points) rounding out the squad’s top three.
Fellow Millsap players Kaiti Mizeski and Taylor Cotton, both juniors, also tallied points, putting up two and one, respectively.
Millsap plays the Peaster Lady Greyhounds in a district game at 6:15 p.m. Friday on the road.
