On Tuesday night in Chelsea, the girls junior varsity put on an offensive show in front of their home fans as they defeated the Lincoln Railsplitters 63-36. The Bulldogs started out slow as they fell behind Lincoln 13-12. But Coach Andrea Hollandsworth regrouped her girls and they fought back to go into halftime with a 26-24 lead.
After the half, the Bulldogs came out with a vengeance and went on a big scoring spree while forcing many turnovers, playing a tight, solid press defense that stymied Lincoln. In the third quarter, Chelsea only allowed Lincoln to score 4 points, with half of those coming off free throws.
The Chelsea girls didn’t let, up forcing several turnovers and getting 15 steals. Coach Hollandsworth emptied the bench giving all her girls playing time. In the second half, the Bulldogs defense only surrounded 12 points as they coasted their way to a big victory.
The Bulldogs had 4 players in double digit scoring, led by Jordan Holton with 18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assist, and 4 steals. Gabby Udell finished with 13 points (one basket off a long 3-pointer), Jenna Fosdick had 11 points with 7 rebounds and 3 steals, while Caitlin Dusenberry finished with 10 points. Kyle Bragg had 4 points and 4 steals.
The Jv team will finish the 2016 year before Christmas Break at Ann Arbor Skyline on Thursday night.
