The Faulkenberry brothers carried the scoring load for Lexington in a lopsided loss at the hands of Lindsay last week.
Zeke and Ezra each scored nine points in the 76-39 contest.
“We didn’t play very well against Lindsay but I was proud of our guys in the Washington game,” head coach Derek Clark said.
Clark, who has been on the pine due to illness, said the two teams were tied at halftime before the Warriors pulled away with a 60-47 victory.
“Ultimately, we came up short against a very good Washington team,” Clark said. “We made some good strides.”
Ty Mixon and Heath Winterton led the offense with 10 each.
Lexington was scheduled to host Marlow Tuesday, play at Purcell on Friday night and at Dibble on Saturday. The Bulldogs are scheduled to travel to Davis next Tuesday night.
The Lexington Lady Bulldogs lost two last week, 60-22 at Lindsay and 54-23 against Washington.
“These girls have come out hard at the tip, but have struggled to keep up the mental toughness as adversity strikes,” head coach Alec Bryen said.
Maddie Manuel and Rylee Beason were the top scorers last week. Manuel had 10 points through both games and Beason had nine.
Freshman Addie Lippel has been in the mix in both games as well.
“Addie has been giving us good minutes. This is her first year of varsity basketball and she’s learning on the fly.”
According to the coach, this season has been tough and has not gone as planned but he’s proud of the girls for their continued tenacity and for showing up every day to work hard.
“It’s not easy to have the next play mentality and it’s something we continue to work on. We are always striving to set ourselves us for success,” Bryen said.
Another tough week was on tap for Lexington as they were set to host Marlow Tuesday night and travel to Purcell Friday night. They also go to Dibble for a 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon tip.
