It was the first round of the girls basketball playoffs. Red River’s game with D’Arbonne Woods Charter had been delayed from Thursday due to the winter storm. So when they collided at the Dawg Pound Sunday afternoon, the Lady Bulldogs were ready.
They came out fast and tight from the opening tip-off. Red River was in control all the way. Final score Red River 74 and D’Arbonne Woods 38.
Leading scorers for the Lady Bulldogs were Kaitlyn Antilley with 23 and Jaedyn French-Solton with 22. Other contributors were Elizabeth Hughes with 11, Jariyah Hamilton with 7, Erica Babers with 6, and Cierra Smith with 2. Off the bench, Nakerra Jones contributed 2 and Lyrika Miller 1.
They face a short turn-around and have to face number 3 seed Lake Arthur way down in bayou country Monday night. It’s a long trip and Lake Arthur is very strong this year. The ladies will have to be on their “A” game.
Right after the game the Lady Bulldogs headed for home and some well-earned rest. Sleep fast tonight and get up charging hard tomorrow.
