At halftime, the Lady Bulldogs had a three-point lead. However, the third quarter seemed to be the turning point in the game, as the Lady Bulldogs went into the fourth quarter trailing Deep Creek 58-53.

A fiery fourth quarter by the Lady Hornets was too much for the Lady Bulldogs. Deep Creek shot the ball exceptionally well on their home floor. They accounted for six three-pointers in the fourth quarter alone, which led them to their 13-point victory.

Nylah Young had the game high with 33 points. Camary Harris added 18 points.

King’s Fork will travel to Grassfield High School at 7 p.m. Friday.
