(UNDATED)–THE THORNDALE LADY DOGS’ BASKETBALL

SEASON CAME TO AN END FRIDAY AS THE LADY DOGS FELL TO

DEFENDING STATE CHAMPION WEIMAR IN THE AREA ROUND

OF THE PLAYOFFS AT GIDDINGS.

THE LADY DOGS BATTLED WITH WEIMAR EARLY, AS

WEIMAR LED BY ONLY ONE, 12 TO 11, AT THE END OF THE

FIRST QUARTER. WEIMAR WENT TO WORK DOWN INSIDE

THE POST IN THE 2ND QUARTER WITH 12 POINTS BETWEEN

POST PLAYERS JADE GARZA AND SUMNER ALMEDIA.

WEIMAR LED BY 11 AT THE HALF, AND LED BY 12 AT THE

END OF THE 3RD QUARTER. IN THE 4TH, WEIMAR PULLED

AWAY.

LADY DOG HEAD COACH BRADLEY DICKERSON SAYS

THE LADY DOGS DIDN’T QUITE EXECUTE, AND WEIMAR IS

A REALLY TOUGH TEAM…

“WELL, FREE THROWS IS A KEY. WE WERE DOWN

12 AT THE HALF, OR WHATEVER IT WAS, AND I THINK WE

MISSED 8 OR 9 FREE THROWS ALREADY. WE ENDED UP

9 OF 23, I THINK, AND SHOT THEM A LITTLE BETTER IN

THE 2ND HALF. BUT, YEAH, WITH THEIR SIZE, YOU CAN’T

MAKE MISTAKES. WE DIDN’T PLAY REALLY GOOD

DEFENSE. WE DIDN’T DO WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT

DOING VERY OFTEN.”
