B-G 50, Unatego 48
BAINBRIDGE – How far as Bainbridge-Guilford come in one month? The Bobcats enter the new year on a five-game winning streak avenging their only loss of the season beating Unatego in the Kazalski Tournament final Friday.
“It was just a great ball game...a lot of fun,” said B-G coach Bob Conway. “As a team, we’re getting better with a lot of things.”
Dani Conway sunk a free throw with 45 seconds remaining for the final margin. Both teams traded possessions and turnovers over the final 30 seconds, and Unatego’s three-point attempt for the lead at the end was off the mark.
Conway had 27 points and 16 rebounds for B-G, and Mariah Schaeffer added 17 points. Perhaps as important as the scoring was the defensive job of Kim Hart on Unatego’s leading scorer Colleen O’Hara. O’Hara was limited to just two free throws on the night. “(Kim Hart) worked her tail off on the defensive end all night, and she did a great job on O’Hara,” Conway said.
B-G (5-1) plays at Windsor Jan. 3.
