The Dora Lady Bulldogs blew open a see saw game in the fourth quarter to
take a 56-48 win over the Walker Lady Vikings last night."We got out
rebounded and outplayed a lot of the time," said Dora coach Brian Keeton.
"But we were fortunate to hit a few big shots especially in the late
going and even our record at 5-5," Keeton added. The Lady Bulldogs
have lost three games to teams ranked in the top five in their respective
classifications. Freshman Chantrese Softley led the Lady Bulldogs with 20
points and Kayla Smiley added 18 for the Lady Bulldogs. Walkers Rachel Pilling
led all scorers with 22 points on the night. Dora jumped out to a quick
6-0 lead over the Lady Vikings.
Walker gradually cut away at the Dora lead. Back-to-back baskets by Gabby
Hood and Rachel Pilling tied the game 12-12 at the end of a quarter. Pilling
scored the Lady Vikings first eight points of the second quarter. Ashley
Tate hit a pull up jumper to give the Lady Vikings a six-point lead.
Back-to-back three pointers by Smiley and Amber Chambers tied the game back
Chantrese Softley hit a pair of baskets as the half wound down and the Lady
Bulldogs took a 28-25 into the locker room. Neither team could find the
range in the third quarter as Dora held to a slim 33-32 lead setting the
stage for a wild fourth quarter. Smiley scored first for Dora to break the
ice but a basket by Tate and a pair of free throws from Maggie Mitchell
gave the Lady Vikings a 36-35 lead with just over six minutes remaining.
Dora's Kimber Holt answered with a basket and was fouled. Holt converted
the three point play to put Dora back ahead for good. Softley nailed a three
pointer and scored nine consecutive points as the Lady Bulldogs pulled away
from Walker and went on to claim a 56-48 win. Story

The Parrish Tornadoes invaded the Dora High Gym on Tuesday night in high
school hoops action. It was Dora in command for the entire game. The Bulldogs,
led by David Westbrook with 19 points, defeated the Purple Tornadoes 83-45.
The win gives the Bulldogs a (7-4) record. The Bulldogs will be off until
December 27, when the Dogs take part in the Big Orange Basketball Tournament,
held at Hoover High School. The first team they will face is UMS-Wright
High School. I don't have a time on that game, but I will have it at a later
time. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL & GO BULLDOGS!!!
