FORGAN, Okla. — One common basketball coaches comment is about the high importance of the first five minutes of the second half of a game. The Forgan Lady Bulldogs heeded that creed and started the second half with a 10-0 run to turn a 5-point game into a 15-point game, and never looked back on their way to a 47-26 win.
After that Waynoka never got closer than 13, and Forgan finished the game on a 13-3 run.
Kenzi Taylor played a big part in the Lady Bulldogs win scoring 29 points and grabbing 14 rebounds - including 9 on the offensive end. Taylor who scores most of her points posting up near the basket showed her range hitting two 3-point baskets in the second quarter.
Forgan Lady Bulldogs head coach Brett Trippet was happy with the win, but see great need for improvement.
"I think we are still just too sloppy - not finishing baskets," said Kerr. " We've got to get a lot better or we are in for a long week with the tournament at Laverne. We've got to finish when we've got shots around the basket, and clean up our defense a little."
Both teams started slow on the offensive end, but Waynoka's scoring drought lasted longer. The Lady Railroaders did not score until the second quarter, and still trailed after that basket 9-2. Waynoka was able to get back in the game and Chassidee Koehn's trey from the left corner in the final minute of the first half left Forgan with only a 17-12 lead at the break.
Forgan won the game in part because of their rebounding advantage and full-court press that allowed them to take 50 shots from the field compared to only 28 for Waynoka. Offensively, the guards struggled.
"I keep talking to them about being too perimeter oriented," said Trippet. "They need to dribble drive, and get some jump shots off. That will come through practice, and just getting confident enough, but the got to start trying to do it too. We can't just talk about it, we got to do it."
Forgan is now 2-1 and will face Booker, Texas, Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Laverne Tournament.
