Lady Bulldogs dominate Goodwell for district crown

By JASON EPP

Leader & Times

The Forgan Lady Bulldogs dominated every phase of the game against the Goodwell Lady Eagles, winning the district championship, 55-32.

Kenzi (20 points) and Nikki (13 points) combined to outscore the entire Goodwell squad (33-32). Kenzi was 9 of 16 from the field; Nikki finished 5 of 13.

As a team, Forgan was 19 of 40 from 2-point range, only 2 of 13 from 3-point range, and made 11 of 23 free throws. Goodwell was just 11 of 51 from the field, and 6 of 8 at the line.

Forgan took control of the game early, taking a 15-3 lead by the end of the first. A 13-8 advantage pushed the Lady Bulldogs lead to 17 at half.

Forgan increased their lead in the third with a 15-5 advantage to take a 27-point lead into the fourth quarter, where they cruised to the 24-point victory.

Forgan (16-8) moves on to the winner’s bracket of the regional tournament. The Lady Bulldogs will try to do something, Thursday at 6:30, they have failed to do in four tries this season – defeat the Shattuck Lady Indians.

Forgan tops Goodwell for district title

The top-ranked Forgan Bulldogs made their first playoff game look like a formality, defeating the Goodwell Eagles 76-34.

Jake Regier led the Bulldogs offense with 28 points, all in the first three quarters. David Stout scored 12, Demetrius Alston 11, and Trevin Lopez added 9.

One odd note was that Forgan, at team that has lived at times off of their perimeter shooting, did not make a single three-point basket.

Forgan controlled the game from the opening quarter, taking a 17-9 lead. A 19-8 advantage in the second quarter made the margin 19 at half (36-17).

The Bulldogs came out of halftime motivated to put the game away, and outscored Goodwell 24-9 in the third to go up by 34 heading into the fourth (60-26).

Even with bench players playing in the fourth, Forgan extended their lead to win by 42.

No.1 Forgan (23-1) moves on to the first round of the regional tournament, Thursday at 8 p.m., when they host Fort Supply.
