Injuries still affecting BHS girls

The Bearden Lady Bulldogs couldn’t overcome the defensive pressure by Heritage and came out on the bottom of a 62-46 loss Thursday, Nov. 29, at HHS.

Sarah Canter and Rikki Sanders led Bearden with 11 points each. Shayla McDaniel and Jenna Maynard had six each, Mary Hirst four, Taylor Cravanas and Dena Riner three and Angel Fine two.

Bearden lost at West 53-47, Tuesday, Nov. 27. Canter led Bearden with 21 points and Sanders had 10. Ellen Smith added eight, Maynard four and Joy McCuen two.

The Lady Bulldogs couldn’t slow down Crystal Kessler, as she scored a game-high 26 points.

“This week we were just inconsistent,” Hodges said. “We played two very good teams. West is better than they were last year and Heritage is always tough. When you play teams of that level you have got to play mistake-free basketball and we just made too many mistakes.”

Overall it wasn’t the best week of basketball that Hodges has seen this season.

“We played pretty poorly at times,” Hodges said. “We saw some things during stretches [where]we played pretty well, but during some stretches we played pretty poorly.”

Injuries have plagued the Lady Bulldogs this season. While none have been too severe, the nagging injuries have been plentiful.

“We are banged up,” Hodges said. “We’ve got some young players in there that are trying to step up and do the best job that they can but they are making some mistakes at times and making some plays at times.”

Hirst, a junior, and Riner, a senior, returned to the lineup against Heritage, but saw limited action.

When everybody returns to the lineup at full strength, the Lady Bulldogs hope to find the consistency that has been lacking thus far throughout the early part of the season.

“We hope by midseason we will have everybody healthy and we will click a little bit better, especially on offense,” Hodges said. “Our offense at times has been really off with having different players at different spots.”
