The Lady Bulldogs defeat conference foe Greenbrier 65-25 on homecoming night.

It was a Homecoming night to remember as the Lady Bulldogs continued their march through the 5A West Conference

Greenwood would get the opening tip nearly effortlessly from Greenbriar. Anna Trusty would open up the game with a quick 2 points from there it was all Lady Bulldogs. A 22-12 opening quarter would be the closest margin for the Lady Panthers. Brooklyn Woolsey had a quick steal and took it in for 2. Izzy Smith nearly had an incredible steal and pass but it was picked by Greenbriar. Anna Trusty led the scoring in Period 1 with 8 points. Followed by a 6 point effort from Carly Sexton. Brooklyn Woolsey would add 5 and Mady Cartwright with 3.

Period 2 the Lady Bulldogs continued to build on the lead with a 21-5 run to put the score at 43-17 at the half. Mady Cartwright had a great steal on a Greenbriar pass than passed to Anna Trusty for two. The Lady Bulldogs would go on an unanswered 15 point run to end the 2nd period. Cartwright and Trusty carried the weight of the scoring with 10 points and 7 points respectively. Ella Williams and Jenna Honkala would both add two.

The second half was all Lady Bulldogs as they held Greenbriar just to 8 points, with none of the points coming in the 4th period. Mady Cartwright, a University of Tulsa signee, put the Lady Bulldogs at the 50 point mark. A minute later Brooklyn Woolsey would get a three pointer to keep pushing the Lady Bulldogs lead even further.

In the 4th period the smothering Lady Bulldog defense would hold the Panthers to zero points while Sophomore’s Izzy Smith and Piper Pitts, and Freshman Kylah Pearcy each added two.

Anna Trusty had 21 points, Mady Cartwright with 18, and Brooklyn Woolsey with 8. Junior Carly Sexton added 6 with a strong first half.

“Our kids played hard, we practice hard. That’s what we stress first. Hustling all the time, getting to the ball. Sometimes the offense you can’t control, but if you play defense amd rebound and take care of the ball you’re always going to have a chance.” Head Coach Clay Reeves said after the Lady Bulldogs held Greenbrier to just 8 points in the second half.

Greenwood is on the road in a make-up game against Alma on Monday. The game was postponed due to the snow we saw across the Arkansas River Valley. They will be off on Tuesday then it is back against Russellville on Friday in Russellville. Greenwood Sports Center with Tim Terry on the call, will have live coverage as the Lady Bulldogs start their trek into the 2nd half of the Conference slate. A big Valentine’s Day night match up looms as Siloam Springs travels to Greenwood, in the last meeting on January 17th a last second shot propelled the Lady Bulldogs past the Lady Panthers. Circle that on your calendar and fill up H.B. Stewart Bulldog Arena.
