Lady Bulldogs get by in SFT test

INGALLS — "A win is a win."

That's the old coach's mantra to describe a win that isn't pretty but still counts in the record book.

Not one to buck tradition, that's how Ingalls coach Roger Thurlow described his team's 53-29 win over Moscow in Santa Fe Trail League action Friday.

Ingalls used a pressing defense in the first half to force 11 Moscow turnovers, which kept the ball on its end of the floor a good portion of the half. The defense held the Lady Wildcats to just six baskets on 37 attempts for the game.

In fact Moscow scored more points on free throws — 17 — than they did on field goals.

Ingalls ran its offense well the first quarter as seven players scored and the Lady Bulldogs kept attacking the basket.

The second quarter featured more of the same, as Elizabeth Wendel came off the bench to sink three inside shots of her own.

Wendel ended up with 11 points to lead Ingalls, picking up for Savannah Dwyre, who only hit one bucket and just 4-of-10 free throws.

Dwyre did have a good night on the boards, grabbing 13 of her team's 41.

"This wasn't our prettiest game," Thurlow said. "We missed a lot of easy shots, and defensively we didn't move our feet well. We've played good defense all season without fouling, but tonight was not an example of that."

Ingalls picked up 24 fouls total, 14 in the first half
