On Friday night, the top two girls’ teams in Berks I took to the court in West Lawn. The Lady Bulldogs, who entered Friday’s contest with 6-0 record in Berks I, welcomed the Lady Muhls. Muhlenberg came in with a 5-1 mark, their only blemish coming December 19th against Wilson.
The game got off to a solid start for the Lady Muhls, who pulled within one at 6-5 after an Angel Nieves three-pointer. However, that would be as close as they would get. The Lady Bulldogs went on to score the final 16 points of the first quarter, closing with a 22-5 lead.
The Lady Bulldogs, led by the strong defensive efforts of Carley Brew, limited the Lady Muhls to just 5 points again in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Ivory Bailey caught fire for the Wilson offense and quite simply could not be stopped. The Lady Bulldogs entered the half with a 33-10 lead.
While Wilson left their starters in to begin the second half, it was short lived. Coach Doug Myer dug deep into his bench with the game in hand.
The Lady Bulldogs rode their bench to a 51-27 final score.
Ivory Bailey led the Lady Bulldogs with a game-high 14 points on a perfect 4-4 from the floor, as well as 5-5 from the charity stripe. Carley Brew added 7 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 blocks.
The Lady Muhls were led by Angel Nieves, who finished with 7 points.
Wilson, since falling to 6-7 overall, has now reeled off 4 consecutive wins, tied for their longest streak of the season. The Lady Bulldogs, who sit pretty at 10-7 overall head to Central Dauphin for a non-league matchup Saturday. They will look to avenge their one point loss to the Lady Rams on December 30.
The Lady Muhls, who now also stand at 10-7, will travel to Cocalico on Saturday.
