Saturday will be a quality challenge for the Lady Bulldogs. They believe their performance against the Lady Truckers can give them a bit of confidence for Saturday evening’s matchup.

“We have to just to keep playing like we have been playing,” Nichols said. “We have been on fire on offense and tough on defense. Defense will be the key to the game. As long as we continue to play as a team, we shouldn’t have a problem.”

The Lady Bulldogs average about 75 points at home and do not have a home loss this season. Princess Anne comes into the game averaging roughly around 78 points in road games. However, the Lady Cavs have yet to reach the 100-point mark to this point in their season.

Defense will be the key. If the Lady Bulldogs are able to play solid defense and continue to score at a 75-point pace, that could be enough them to come away with a win Saturday night.

King’s Fork will play Princess Anne at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $10 for anyone 12 and older and $6 for those 11 and younger. After King’s Fork faces Princess Anne, they will get back to Conference 17 action on Tuesday. The Lady Bulldogs will face Great Bridge on the road Jan. 17.
