Baldwin girls defense stingy in win
Burlington — The Baldwin girls basketball team used defense to rout Anderson County, 41-14, in its opening game of the Bulldog-Wildcat Classic.
The Bulldogs didn’t give up a field goal to Anderson County until 2 minutes remained in the third quarter. Although Baldwin’s defense was good from the start, holding Anderson County to no points in the first quarter, the team was a bit slow out of the gate, leading, 4-0, after the first period.
Baldwin exploded in the second 8 minutes, taking a 21-1 lead to the locker room.
Ten players scored in the Bulldogs balanced attack with Hailey Cope, Katie Jones, Maddie Ogle and Kailyn Smith each finishing with six points.
The 2-0 Bulldogs will play Chanute at 7:30 p.m. in the Burlington Middle School gym in the last round of the tournament’s pool play. A win would assure the Bulldogs of a slot in the championship game on Friday.
