On Tuesday evening, the Perryton Rangerettes used a 10-2 run in the fourth period to pull away for the 48-34 win over the Borger Lady Bulldogs at Tex Hanna Gym.
The win allows Perryton to stay perfect in district, while the Bulldogs drop to 0-3 after the first of three rounds of District 1-3A play.
The young Lady Bulldog squad came out playing well on both ends to put themselves in position to try to get the win before Perryton’s late run.
A jumper by senior Vanessa Jones put the Lady Bulldogs on the scoreboard first at the 5:20 mark of the first period.
Perryton would answer back and eventually build an 8-15 lead by the 5:40 mark of the second period.
But the Lady Bulldogs did a good job of keeping the Rangerettes from pulling way by using lay ups by Nellie Embers and McKenzie Loftis to pull back to within two points, 19-21, at the 1:05 mark of the second period.
The Lady Bulldogs opened the third period on fire and were able to take a 27-24 lead, off of baskets by Emma Wood and Breezy Brown.
Perryton responded by nailing three three pointers in the third period. But the Lady Bulldogs were able to get some momentum thanks to a three pointer by freshman Tiffanie Prater made it a 32-35 score.
Unfortunately, the Lady Bulldog struggled to get much going offensively in the final period, allowing the Rangerettes to pull away for the win.
The Lady Bulldogs go to 4-17 overall, 0-3 in District 1-3A play and will begin the second round of district play on Friday night hosting Pampa at 6:00 p.m.
