OGDEN — Slow but steady worked just fine for the Ogden girls basketball team Tuesday.
The hosts outscored visiting Woodward-Granger by six points in the first quarter and by another six in the second quarter, with one-point advantages in each of the final two periods resulting in a 50-36 victory.
The Bulldogs (12-5, 8-4) led by scores of 13-7 and 27-15 after two frames, then held a 35-22 edge at the end of the third period en route to the win over the Hawks (1-12, 1-11).
“We just never could get enough shots to fall or make enough stops on defense,” W-G head coach Gary Dresback said. “Every time we would have a little mini-run of four points we would give up something easy defensively or miss the next three shots.”
“We had our chances to stay in this game but just could not capitalize when they made mistakes,” he added. “We are still searching for consistency.”
Mary Hansen had 11 points, 10 rebounds and four steals for W-G, with Kayley Dresback adding eight points, four steals and two assists while Alyssa Bice tallied six points and Magi Mallon five points and three boards. Riley Jamison provided three points and two steals, with Kendra Husmann adding two points, four rebounds and two assists while Miranda Aunspach contributed a free throw and two steals.
Anna Langel led Ogden with 16 points and five assists while Ellee Laws had 15 points and 12 rebounds and Kennedy Kruse six points and five caroms. Five points from Kylie Nichols and four each from Ashton Boggess and Kim Christensen capped the Bulldog scoring.
W-G returns to the court Friday with a visit from Madrid and will then host Panorama Tuesday.
