The Panthers played better offensively in the second half but weren’t able to slow down the Bulldogs’ offensive attack. Roberts was often dominant, finishing with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Maison Moseley scored 10 points and dished out four assists. The Bulldogs shot 45 percent from the field to the Panther’s 33 percent, the Bulldogs also scored 18 points in transition.
“Overall a good bounce-back game! Shot the ball a lot better. Brittany played another good game she is having an outstanding season. Dani was all over the place her impoverished is very much needed.” Head Coach Josh Nichols said. “Victoria gave us really good minutes again she keeps getting better down the stretch. A couple of defensive lapses, but we did a good job stopping York.”
The Bulldogs play at home next Wednesday at 6 p.m. against St. Mary’s.
