Lady Bulldogs escape with 55-53 win over JCD


The third win of the season did not come easy for the Batesville High School girls basketball team.

The Lady Bulldogs held off a late rally by the host Jac-Cen-Del Lady Eagles to post a 55-53 victory.

Both teams favored an up-tempo style of play to begin the game and the officials did not seem to have a problem with the up and down aggressive style of play.

The Lady Bulldogs continued for nearly the entire four quarters, but coach Scott Smith and the Lady Eagles chose to abandon the full court approach and settled into a half court defense until the final minutes.

The game was close the entire first quarter. The Lady Bulldogs pressured JCD at every opportunity and it seemed to be working, but the scoreboard did not indicate as such.

The Lady Eagles decided to lift their full court pressure near the three minute mark and went on to score four of the final six points of the quarter to lead 10-9 at the first stop.

Rebecca Roell gave the Lady Bulldogs nice spark off the bench and buried a 3-pointer to give the Lady Bulldogs their biggest lead of the game at 16-12. Jac-Cen-Del's Jordan Day immediately counted with a 3-pointer and returned it to a one point margin.

The Batesville lead jumped to six points on back-to-back 3-pointers by Madi Oesterling and a free throw by Roell. A field goal by Oesterling later closed the second quarter with the Lady Bulldogs on top 27-21.

The margin did not get any greater than six points in the third quarter until Roell and Oesterling combined for the final five points to make it 42-34.

Despite the eight point difference, there was still the feeling it was anyone's ball game to win.

And that proved to be the case.
