The winner will play at 6 p.m. The loser will play Friday at 6 p.m. Both games will be in Kellyville.

Saturday’s win over Crooked Oak was the result of lots of hard work, commitment and dedication, according to head coach Jacobi Couch.

Down 18-15 at halftime, Lexington came out in the third quarter and outscored the Ruf-Nex 13-7 to hold a 28-25 lead going into the final stanza.

The Lady ‘Dawgs outscored Crooked Oak 17-16 to get the four point win.

Boys

The Lexington Bulldogs are in Washington today (Thursday) to face Dove Science at 2:30 p.m. in Regional tournament action.

The winner of that game will play again at 2:30 p.m. Friday in Kellyville.

“We have a good chance of winning the game with Dove Science. They struggle some with pressure and aggressive defense and if we turn up the intensity, we can cause them some issues. We’ll have to stay out of foul trouble, too,” head coach Kyle Wells said.

District Tournament

Saturday night, Lexington was in Crooked Oak for a district championship. The Bulldogs dropped the game 96-52.

“Crooked Oak was tough. They really pushed the pace and we had trouble keeping up.

“Their speed and athleticism was just too much for us in the end.”

The Ruf-Nex held a 50-26 lead at halftime and they didn’t slow down at all in the second half.

Crooked Oak outscored Lexington 46-26 in the final two stanzas.

Zeke Faulkenberry and Colt Mixon were the lone Bulldogs in double figures with 13 and 11, respectively. Ty Mixon and Drew Dierking added seven apiece.

Little Axe

Last Tuesday, in their final regular season game, Lexington picked up a 77-54 win over the Indians.

The Bulldogs jumped out, fast and furious, from the tip. They outscored Little Axe 22-5 in the first quarter and had a 41-16 halftime lead.

The game seemed to even up in the second half, but Lexington had already built a sizeable lead.

“The Little Axe game went really well; we played great as a team,” Wells said.

The Bulldogs finished the night with 21 assists, 19 steals and 44 rebounds, 16 of which were offensive.

“It’s always nice when you have multiple players contributing in all areas.”

Dierking led the Bulldogs with 20 points. Faulkenberry and Ty Mixon each added 17 points. Elijah Pearman had six.
