Grovetown keeps early lead for win

GROVETOWN -- Things aren't going so well these days for the Lady Bulldogs of Thomson High School.

Their latest 57-25 loss came at the hands of the Grovetown Lady Warriors on Friday.

"We've got to start playing better basketball; that's just all there is to it," Thomson head coach Michael Williams said.

Thomson was limited to just seven field goals by Grovetown.

"We've got to score more field goals than that if we're going to try and win in sub-region play," coach Williams added.

Grovetown increased its impressive overall win-loss record to 16-1. They remain perfect, 4-0, in the Sub-Region 3-bAAA standings.

Thomson got behind 19-10 after the first eight minutes . From that point on, it was all downhill. By halftime, the Lady Warriors led 37-11.

Grovetown's defensive play held Thomson to just a pair of field goals in both the second and third quarters.

In the fourth, the Lady Bulldogs stormed back to score 12 points -- the team's biggest offensive spurt of the game.

Thomson was led in scoring by Keona Bradshaw with 8 points. Other Thomson players scoring: Brittany Reid, 6, Nekia McNair, 5, Sharlette Farmer, 2, Lakeedia Cooper, 2 and Warda Ladell, 1.

The Lady Bulldogs were scheduled to have played the Richmond Academy Lady Musketeers on Tuesday. They will play home gamesagainst Harlem on Friday and Salem on Saturda. Results of those games will be in next week's edition.
