The Bulldogs dropped a heartbreaker to Des Moines Christian on Thursday night by a final score, 49-40. The girls had plenty of opportunities early in the contest to stretch their lead out but couldn’t convert on shots near the basket. With the Bulldogs leading 15-10 in the 2nd, the DMC Lions went on a 18-7 run over the last 4 minutes of the half to go into half leading 28-22. The 3rd quarter became a little less offensive with both teams forcing turnovers in the half court. Ultimately, missed layups and turnovers will get teams beat by better teams and that proved true tonight.

Next week will be a busy one for the Bulldogs as they will look to get a winning streak going by playing 4 games. They will host Grandview Christian on Monday, travel to I35 on Tuesday, host Pleasantville Thursday and travel to Woodward-Granger on Friday.
