BRAY -— The Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys rebounded from a sub-par first half to knock off the visiting Wilson Lady Eagles 44-33.
“For the most part, our shots weren’t dropping and we let our defensive intensity get away,” Bray-Doyle head coach Jaicee Powers said. “In the second half, we played a lot harder. Our shots still didn’t fall but our defensive intensity picked up.”
The Lady Donkeys overcame 16 missed free throws to pick up the win. Kendra Balthrop scored 17 points and Sarah Justus added 12 for Bray-Doyle, which improved to 3-1. The team will be back in action at 1:30 p.m. Saturday when it travels to Apache.
