Edgewood gets lopsided win against A-G girls


The Edgewood Lady Bulldogs possess great basketball acumen. They move to the open areas, they anticipate passing lanes, and they can all drive and finish. Last Tuesday they unleashed a cascade of scoring against an overmatched Lady Panther squad. The Alba-Golden side went down in defeat 62-9.

The visiting Lady Bulldogs executed a very effective press which converted turnovers to points at a rapid rate. At the end of one quarter Edgewood was up 23-0. The onslaught continued in the second period.

To their credit, the Lady Panthers continued their hustle and energy in the second half. However, back-to-back turnovers (a steal and a backcourt violation) at the onset of the third quarter indicated that there would be no change in the direction of the game. 

Edgewood sat their starters with 5:00 to play in the third quarter and the score 50-7. 

Overwhelming defeats are tough to take, but the Lady Panthers obviously enjoy the competition of scholastic basketball. They are willing to compete against the best in the district and represent themselves well.
