BDS 14-2, No. 1 WC Points

On Tuesday, January 16,  the Bruning-Davenport/Shickley welcomed the McCool Junction Lady Mustangs to town.  The Lady Mustangs hung in there with the Lady Eagles in the first quarter never allowing BDS to pull away.  After one quarter of play, BDS held a five point lead.  Defensively, the Lady Eagles were able to hold McCool Junction to just four points in the second quarter and built a 14 point lead going in to half time.
BDS would go on to win the CRC contest, 50-33.
BDS committed 22 turnovers in the game which helped McCool Junction stay in the game.
Carley Elznic let the Eagles with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  Regan Alfs chipped in 10 and Nicole Swartzendruber added 9.  Lexi Kadel added 5 assists, 5 steals along with 8 points.
BDS traveled to Exeter to play the Exeter-Milligan Lady Timberwolves on Friday, January 19.
"Going in to the game we knew it would be a battle after beating Exeter-Milligan in the consolation     game of the MUDECAS tournament," BDS head coach Shana Gerberding said.  "Exeter-Milligan is such a well coached team you knew they would be ready to take it to us.  They did just that in the first quarter building an 11 point lead.    It says a lot about the character of the Lady Eagles because they could have easily folded in the first quarter but they fought back to within six."      The BDS defense in the second quarter got them back in to the game and the girls held E-M to just  five points in the second quarter.  Going into half time the Lady Eagles only trailed by one.
The second half was a back and forth battle which neither team could pull away from the other.  Down the stretch and in to overtime, the Eagles were able to knock down free throws and get stops on the defensive end to secure the win.      
Megan Grote led the Lady Eagles with 12 points, Lexi Kadel and Macy Kamler each added 10 points while Carley Elznic pulled down 11 rebounds.
With the win, the Lady Eagles improve to 14-2 (No. 1 in wildcard points in Class D-1) on the season and will begin the Crossroads Conference Tournament on Wednesday in York against Dorchester.  The CRC semi-finals will be Thursday with the final slated for 6:30 p.m., on Friday at the York City Auditorium.
