Ogden 43 - Woodward-Granger 37

The first round of the playoffs saw Ogden go up against conference foe Woodward-Granger. The game was at home for the Bulldogs and the home crowd was treated to a good game. The game was close from the opening tip, but the Lady Bulldogs played a strong game throughout and won 43 to 37. The win keeps the Lady Bulldogs’ season alive.

Ashton Boggess, had a team high 19 points, which led Ogden to the win. Ashton shot an impressive eight of ten from the free throw line. Gabby Ross came off the bench and added in ten points and five rebounds. Abby Langel chipped in six points, while Allea Klauenberg and Meredith Adreon each added in four points. Denali Loecker chipped in five rebounds, three of which were offensive rebounds. 

Coach Van Wyk had this to say about the Lady Bulldogs performance: “The girls did a great job of maintaining their composure throughout the game. Considering the close nature of the two previous games we had with Woodward-Granger, we knew we would have to play well. I think W-G had the momentum in their favor much of the first half of the game. 

“I was pleased with how our girls continued to grind out each possession until we got the lead back. We’ve done a better job the last two games of cutting down our turnovers and that’s paid dividends on the offensive end of the floor. Gabby Ross has been a huge lift for us off the bench the last week; she’s shot the basketball very efficiently the last two games.”

Ogden will travel to Earlham Tuesday night, facing off against the Cardinals.
