Big Second Half Propels Lady Bulldogs Past Conner
The Lady Bulldogs overcame a sluggish first quarter to win their sixth straight game on Monday night, 76-33 over visiting Conner High School.
Up just 14-9 at the end of the first quarter, Holmes opened the second quarter on a 5-0 run and pushed the lead to 14 - 29-13 - at the break.
In the second half, Conner struggled to get anything going against Holmes, who outscored the Cougars 30-10 in the third quarter to open a 59-25 lead. In the fourth quarter, it was more of the same from the Lady Bulldogs who held Conner to just eight points over the final eight minuts en route to a 76-33 victory.
With the win, Holmes improved their record to 24-1 on the season while Conner fell to 10-17.
The next game for the Lady Bulldogs is scheduled for Thursday night against Cooper.
