BHS girls stumble two times

The woes continue for the Bearden Lady Bulldogs.

For the second week in a row they were unable to win, extending a losing streak to five games as its record drops to 10-8 overall entering the week after losing to Cocke County 57-50 on Thursday, Jan. 13, at CCHS.

An 11-point deficit at halftime motivated the Lady Bulldogs in the third quarter, as they went on a 16-3 run at the beginning of the third to take the lead, 38-35.

However, the lead was only temporary. CCHS forced back-to-back steals that led to easy baskets and a 43-38 lead after three quarters.

Clutch free throw shooting in the fourth allowed Cocke County to maintain the lead and send the Lady Bulldogs home with a loss.

Bearden was led offensively by Ashley Blue’s 13 points. Kelly Kohlbusch contributed 10 points.


Led by Angela Puleo’s 22 points, William Blount defeated the Lady Bulldogs 62-55 Tuesday, Jan. 11 at BHS.

The Lady Bulldogs were unable to take the lead after tying the game with 4:59 remaining in the game after two free throws resulting from Puleo’s fifth foul.

Before fouling out, Puleo controlled the game with accurate shooting and sticky defense. “She was on fire,” BHS junior post Sarah Himmelreich said of the William Blount standout. “She made every shot pretty much.”

The Lady Governors held on despite a noble comeback attempt from the Lady Bulldogs.

“I thought we played with a lot more heart than we have been playing with the last couple of games,” Bearden head coach Jennifer Allen said. “We did have a chance to take the lead; we just gave up a couple of shots back to back.”

Himmelreich led the BHS offense with 21 points while Blue added 11.

“We had a really good practice (the day before) and that boosted our confidence back,” Himmelreich added. “I think overall we played really well and gave it our best effort.”

Bearden faced a tough nut to crack Tuesday, Jan. 18, as it hosted Heritage (after press deadline) before hitting the road to take on archrival Farragut tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 21). Friday’s opening tip-off is set for approximately 6:30 p.m.
