Lady Bulldogs outpace Eagles

EDMOND — The Edmond Memorial Lady Bulldogs built an early lead on Friday night against the Eagles from Del City and never looked back, cruising to a 50-31 victory.

“It didn’t feel like that to me,” Dandy Peeler said about the win. “It felt like a one possession game.”

It took five minutes before either team scored a field goal. Rachel Campo hit a 3-pointer with three minutes remaining in the first quarter to put the Bulldogs up 5-1. Edmond Memorial balanced out their attack throughout the first quarter. Sophomore Andy Decker led the Bulldogs with four points, helping Memorial to a 12-6 lead.

Del City found their way to the basket much more in the second quarter. After trailing 14-6, Del City went on a 6-0 run sparked by turnovers. Campo hit a 3-pointer at the same mark as she did in the first quarter to end the run and keep the Bulldogs in front 17-12 with three minutes remaining until halftime.

The Eagles would fail to get another basket in the final three and a half minutes of the first half and saw the Lady Bulldogs score five more to take a 21-12 lead into the locker room. Dionna Collins led the Eagles in scoring with five points followed by Malerie Denson’s four. Memorial was led in scoring by Campo with six and Jenny Roy with five.

“They are such an offensive threat,” Peeler said. The Bulldogs’ head coach spoke highly of her defense doing better against the 3-pointer this game than they did the first time the teams met.

For Del City, Clark had as many field goals in the first three minutes of the third quarter, three, as the Eagles did in the entire first half. The Bulldogs scrapped their way through the stretch to maintain their lead. With five minutes remaining, it was Edmond 28 to Del City’s 18.

Both teams evened out their offense in the final minutes of the quarter and the Bulldogs continued to lead by a score of 35-22.

The Eagles could not cut into the lead in the final quarter. Edmond Memorial pulled ahead by as many as 13 points with three minutes to go and held serve throughout the remainder of the game. Jessica Foster began the fourth quarter with only two points, but the led the Bulldogs with nine points in the final stanza.

“She [Foster] does everything right,” Peeler said.

Roy’s 13 led the Bulldogs, Foster added 11 and Decker finished with eight after leaving the game with an ankle injury. Rachel Campo also finished with eight points.

Memorial (11-6) will host Norman (8-10) on Tuesday.

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg OPINION: Golf turns into snooze-fest without celebrities like Tiger and Phil

    The Masters lumbered on last week without two of pro golf's biggest names, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and fans changed the channel. The PGA needs someone with star power if it's going to lure people back to the game.
