Lady Bulldogs Outpace Lady Bombers


In the first meeting between the two schools, the Lady Bulldogs had played a game the night before against Siloam Springs then made the trip to Baxter County the next night. Mountain Home would hand the Lady Bulldogs their first conference loss since 2019 in a 46-55. On Senior Night in H.B. Stewart Arena, the Greenwood set out to prove they are the team to beat in Class 5A with an 80-55 win.

Both teams played equally in the first period, ending with a score of 16-16. It took two minutes of game time before either team would score a basket. Carley Sexton ended the first quarter with eight points, followed by Anna Trusty with six points. Junior Izzy Smith got on the board with points from the free-throw line.

Senior Brooklyn Woolsey opened the 2nd period with a 3-point basket, from there Greenwood pulled away from Mountain Home. A missed 3-point basket from Kylah Pearcy was rebounded by Anna Trusty who ended the Lady Bulldog possession with two-points from under the basket. The Lady Bulldogs outscored Mountain Home 18-8 going into the half. Carly Sexton again, led the scoring charge with six points, Anna Trusty had five points. Brooklyn Woolsey with three points, and Izzy Smith and Kylah Pearcy with two each.

Brooklyn Woolsey started the second half just as she started the previous quarter with a three-point basket to start things off. Woolsey would get Greenwood past the 50-point mark with another 3-pointer enroute to her nine-point performance. Kylah Pearcy added eight points, and Anna Trusty with another five-points. The Lady Bulldogs led going into the fourth period, 56-38 over the Lady Bombers.

A foul under the basket getting a rebound found Anna Trusty in foul trouble, picking up her fourth foul of the night. Carley Sexton took the Lady Bulldogs to the 80-point mark, where the Lady Bulldogs would end the night. Greenwood won 80-55.

The Lady Bulldogs have just two more games to go in the 2023-2024 regular season. On Tuesday they travel to Alma and then finish the regular season against Greenbrier on Friday Night.
