Priceville falls to Athens

The Priceville Lady Bulldogs took on the undefeated Athens Golden Eagles in the Lady Hawk’s Thanksgiving Classic.

The Bulldogs opened the game with a 4-0 lead behind three steals and baskets from Kele Nelson and Ashlee Quinn. Athens cut the lead to 4-2 but Nelson extended it to 7-2 with a three pointer. The Bulldogs raced out to a 14-7 lead behind baskets from Nelson along with Kathleen Wheeler and Skyler Benson. Athens came back to take the lead 15-14. Anna Langlois took it back 17-15 with a three point play, but the Golden Eagles tied it back at 17-17 and then took the lead at the end of the first quarter with a buzzer beating three pointer.

Priceville took the lead back at the start of the second with another Nelson three pointer. However, Athens reeled off four points to take the lead back 24-23. The two teams went back and forth but the Golden Eagles finished the quarter on a 7-0 run to take a 31-27 lead into halftime.

Athens came out hot in the second by going on a 7-4 run to take a 38-31 lead. However, the Bulldogs retaliated by going on a 11-0 run, all of which came from Kathleen Wheeler including 3 three pointers, to take the lead back 42-38. The two teams finished the third quarter tied at 46 a piece.

Priceville took the lead 48-46 to start the last quarter behind a basket from Benson, but a 14-1 run by Athens took the air out of the Bulldogs and Athens went on to win 73-63.

Player of the game: Kathleen Wheeler. Athens was headed towards blowing the game open in the third until Wheeler single handedly brought them back. The Bulldog’s loss overshadows Wheeler’s effort.
