Even though there are signs of improvement on the basketball court for the Lady Bulldogs of Thomson High School, they still aren't finding ways to win games.
And that's particularly frustrating for players, as well as first year Head Coach Michael Williams.
"We just didn't match up against Washington County," lamented Coach Williams after his Lady Bulldogs lost a 56-27 game to the Lady Golden Hawks at home last Friday night. "They played such intense defense against us. It made it difficult for our young team."
During the first half, Thomson committed 22 turnovers.
Coach Williams said his team can't afford to make that many mistakes in a game, let alone in a half, and expect to come out winners.
"We've got to improve a lot when it comes to the number of turnovers that we are making," Coach Williams said.
During the second half of the game against Washington County, the Lady Bulldogs also had difficulties identifying one of the best shooters for the Lady Golden Hawks, he added.
"We didn't identify No. 14 as being their hot shooter in the second half and that hurt us, too," Coach Williams said.
The Lady Bulldogs, who have managed to win only one game thus far this season, suffered a heartbreaking loss at the hands of Morgan County's Lady Bulldogs at home last Tuesday night. The final score was 51-47.
"We had opportunities to win that game," Coach Williams said. "We just didn't take advantage of those opportunities."
Thomson will travel to Dublin on Friday to play West Laurens in a region game and return home on Saturday to play the Burke County Lady Bears.
