The Lady Bulldogs hosted Lake Taylor in a Conference 17 matchup. In the first meeting, Lake Taylor won at home by two points. On Monday night the Lady Bulldogs came back with a 57-45 win.

“The game was good,” Lady Bulldogs coach Maurice Fofana said. “We did many things that we had been working on and had success. I didn’t like the way we closed the game out, but we got the win, and that was the main thing.”
