Heading into the season, the Lady Bulldogs had to have had Spring-Ford circled on their calendars. The Spring-Ford girls were the defending state champion, having knocked off Cumberland Valley in the AAAA state championship game.
The Wilson girls have state championship aspirations this season and Saturday’s matchup with the Lady Rams would go a long way in helping them prove their worth.
Senior guard Avery Marz found herself in early foul trouble for the Lady Bulldogs, as she picked up two fouls in the first 3 minutes of the game. However, the Lady Bulldogs would still be able to tread water without their leader as they held to a 7-7 tie after the first quarter.
The tie would not last long as the Lady Bulldogs, with Marz back on the court, would begin to pull away in the second quarter. When the buzzer sounded, Wilson held a 19-11 lead heading into the half.
The Lady Bulldogs, led by frontcourt mates Carley Brew and Jessie Wallace, would again dominate the third quarter. Wilson led 29-15 after three quarters.
Despite a high-paced push by the Lady Rams in the fourth quarter, Wilson was able to hold on to win 43-26.
The Lady Bulldogs got 11 points out of Avery Marz, 10 points and 8 rebounds out of Jessie Wallace, 8 points and 12 rebounds out of Carley Brew, and 8 points out of Ivory Bailey.
Wilson, who improved to 9-7 on the season, will host Muhlenberg on Friday in a Berks I matchup between its top two teams.
