Chelsea entered Ann Arbor Pioneer’s gym on Tuesday night in need of a big victory and that’s exactly what they got. Coach Annie Hollandsworth’s Bulldogs played an excellent team effort game on their way to a huge 47-27 victory.
The Bulldogs started strong tallying 18 points in the first quarter and holding Pioneer to only 2 baskets. In the 2nd quarter, the Pioneer defense tightened up but so did Chelsea’s, not allowing a single Pioneer basket as they took a huge 23-4 lead into the half.
Pioneer came out strong fast after the second half but so did Chelsea as they kept the pedal to the metal, playing a strong pressing defense creating lots of turnovers. Chelsea spread the ball around a lot and dominated on the boards.
The Bulldogs moved to 6-6 on the season behind their leading scorer Jordan Holton who finished the night with 12 points and 4 rebounds. Jenna Fosdick finished with 10 points and 3 rebounds, while Kyle Bragg put up 7 points and led the team with 5 rebounds and also played a strong defensive game. Several players finished with 4 points and a few rebounds each.
The Bulldogs hit the road again this Friday to play Ypsilanti with a 5:30 tipoff.
