The Forgan Lady Bulldogs lost a close one to the Cheyenne Lady Bears, 42-37, Saturday at the Thomas Festival.

Lindsey Trippet and KaDawn McReynolds did their best to help the Lady Bulldogs cause, scoring 17 and 10 respecively. Kenzi Taylor, Forgan’s leadi ng scorer the last two seasons was held to just four points.

“They put a stronger, bigger girls on her and we didn’t do a very good job of getting her open,” said Brett Trippet. “Kenzi got in foul trouble and their big girls took advantage of her being out.”

Forgan took a 12-7 lead in the first quarter, and still help a one point lead at half, 19-18. Cheyenne took the lead for good in the third, and led 26-24 after three quarters. Cheyenne also outscored Forgan 16-13 in the fourth for the final margin of five.

“We’re doing a lot of things right,” said Trippet. “We are passing the ball better, and playing better defense, but we just have too many small things that need work; like our spacing isn’t very good, and our rebounding isn’t where it needs to be. We have too many things to get better at right now.”

Forgan did get a win over Laverne Friday night, 39-37, and enters the Christmas break 4-4. But the Lady Bulldogs are still ranked 13th, and Coach Trippet sees the improvements.

“I really feel we’ve come a long ways,” said Trippet. “Our young girls are getting better and better, and starting to make some plays. I can see the potentential for the future that we can have a good second semester. We’ve been competitive in every game, but we’ve also let some teams we should have beat more handily compete with us. Hopefully we’ll just keep getting better, and be a really solid team toward the end of the season.”
