Bradshaw lady basketball Bears collect pair of wins

Cheryl Hartz
News Editor

What looked to be an easy week with a single game turned into an up-the-mountain battle for Bradshaw Mountain's basketball girls. But the Lady Bears prevailed 40-35 at Flagstaff High on Dec. 4.

Maybe it wasn't such a surprise, considering Bradshaw's come-from-behind win over the Lady Eagles in Prescott Valley the previous week.

Flagstaff again led through much of the game. The Lady Eagles were up 14-6 after one quarter of play and 24-13 at halftime. But while the host team's shooting went cold with its visitor's increased defensive efforts, the Lady Bears' scoring opportunities increased in the second half.

Bradshaw still trailed 29-27 after outscoring Flag in the third, but continued the onslaught for the victory.

Kylie Morris was Bradshaw's leading scorer with 10 points, and four more Lady Bears - Ashlie Dowdy, Kirsten Smith, Dacie Clark and Angie Banks - contributed 7 points apiece.

Saturday, the Bradshaw ladies got into the community holiday spirit by ringing bells at Salvation Army kettles in Prescott Valley at Sam's Club, Walgreens, Fry's and Hobby Lobby.

That might have revitalized them for Monday's home contest, resulting in a 65-54 triumph over Sedona Red Rock.

As is their signature so far, the Lady Bears started scoring sparingly. Sedona's Lady Scorpions narrowly led after the first quarter 15-14, and doubled their lead - from one point to two - at the half, 28-26. Bradshaw dominated on the strength of a 23-point third quarter, for the 49-38 lead. Although scoring was equal in the fourth, with 16 points from each team, the Lady Bears stayed out front.

Clark led the host team with 17 points, while Morris and Banks contributed a dozen each.

The Lady Bears continue this week's 3-game homestand by playing host to Mingus today and to Chino Valley tomorrow. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
