BDS 4-1

On Tuesday, December 11, the Sutton Fillies came to Davenport to take on the BDS Lady Eagles.
The first half of the game was a defensive battle where neither team could take control of the game. The Fillies were able to build a seven-point lead in the third quarter but the Eagles never gave up and fought back to pull within three points of the Fillies.  At the end of three quarters, Sutton led 32-29.
Sutton managed to build the lead back to seven points in the final quarter.  BDS was able to pull within two points with just under one minute left to play at 37-35.
"We had our chances at the end to tie or take the lead but a few things didn’t go in our favor," BDS coach Shana Gerberding said.
The Eagles suffered their first loss on the season, 40-35.  Regan Alfs led the team with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Kaylee Noel added eight points and Macy Kamler tossed in five.
Fellow Crossroads Conference member Cross County was the next opponent for the Eagles on Friday.  The Eagles were able to start fast and built a 10-0 lead before Cross County was able to score a field goal.
"Our defensive pressure gave the Lady Cougars a lot of trouble in the first quarter.," Gerberding said.  "We were able to get into the passing lanes and deflect passes making it really difficult for the Cougars to get anything going offensively."  
The Cougars came alive in the second quarter and outscored the Eagles 10-9 in the second.
"Our intensity and aggressiveness weren’t at the level we like to come out of half at to start the third quarter," Gerberding said.
Cross County was able to tie the game 23 with under four minutes to play in the third.  The Eagles    answered with a 6-0 run to take the lead back at 29-23 before Cross County answered with a 3-pointer to cut the lead back to three.  By the start of the final quarter BDS held a 34-27 advantage. The Eagles exploded for 19 points to just four for the Cougars in the fourth to win 53-31.
"Our defensive pressure in the fourth took Cross County out of any offensive rhythm," Gerberding said.
Jadyn Kleinschmidt led the Eagles with 20 points, 11 deflections, and 5 steals.  Regan Alfs added 19 points and 9 rebounds while Macy Kamler grabbed 12 rebounds and 6 steals.            
The Eagles improved to 4-1 on the season and No. 2 in wildcard points in Class D-2.  They travel to Sandy Creek on December 20. East Butler will visit Bruning on December 21 in a make-up game from December 1.
