Lady ‘Dawgs show grit

72-58 loss to Holdenville, but coach likes their fight


The game started bad; down 19-0 in the first quarter. But, head coach Alec Bryen’s Lady Bulldogs did not mail it in.

“Our girls kept fighting. I felt good about this game in terms that the team never gave up,” Bryen said.

Though the deficit was significant, Lexington came back and outscored the Holdenville Lady Wolverines the remainder of the game.

“There will be things we need to improve, but I’m happy with how they responded. We were down but we punched them right back.”

Junior Rylee Beason led the team with 24 points. While fellow junior Janelle Winterton joined her in double figures with 10.

“Rylee is a leader and I’m not surprised to see her score. Janelle had a great game. She knows her role is to play as hard as she can when she’s in and she did just that. She had maybe the best game of her life.”

Sophomore Abby Sample had nine in the loss, but the coach mentioned that she had a very well-rounded outing. She did a little bit of everything.

The Lady Bulldogs were scheduled to be in Pauls Valley on Tuesday. Their Friday game with Washington is postponed, to be scheduled at a later date.
