Coach Dan Marshall’s Bulldog girls hoopsters showed no signs of rust after a week layoff. The Lady Bulldogs played a highly- touted San Pasqual (14-2) team in a 51-43 loss.

The Eagles rallied in the second half and closed the gap to 38-36 going into the final eight minutes.

San Pasqual took the lead for good with 7:18 remaining in the game on a 3-point goal to make the score 40-38. The Eagles then took advantage of their superior size in the paint and won the final period by outscoring the Lady Dawgs 15-5.

Hannah Farhat led the team in scoring as she lit up the scoreboard by sinking four 3-point goals. She never took a shot from 2-point land.

“Hannah stroked four 3-pointers and led us in scoring. We are very proud of Hannah. We couldn’t close a very tough team but we played hard and played as a team. We are very proud of the way the team played and we are getting better with every practice. We have played a tough schedule to get ready for league play and when we have had a bad game, the team has worked on improving the next practice,” said Marshall speaking for his staff of Jim Root and Ken Scheib.

Kailey Hill contributed a pair of nines. She scored 9 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Six of her boards were on the defensive end of the court where she also had a blocked shot and two steals.

Christina Barrameda also scored 9 points to go with her six boards, three steals and four assists.

Katherine Mauldin played tough in the paint as she grabbed nine rebounds and scored 4 points.

Julie Ward spent a lot of time on the floor diving for loose balls as she had a game high six steals and scored 4 points.

Niki Spring had a well- rounded game as she scored 5 points, grabbed three rebounds, blocked a shot, had three steals, and dished off two assists.

Kylee Scheib and Mackenzie Griffin played well on defense and both ninth graders had one rebound apiece.

Ramona has a 10-7 record as it heads to the final week of cross league play. Ramona has the best non- league record of any Valley League team.
