GIRLS

The Belgreen Bulldogs edged out a squeaker over Red Bay Tuesday night, winning 56-53.

In a back-and-forth fourth quarter, the Bulldogs came out on top as a Red Bay shot to tie the game at the buzzer didn’t fall.

Red Bay cut the game to three points in the third 40-37 and tied the game in the fourth quarter – but after multiple ties and lead changes, the Bulldogs came out on top of the Tigers.

Noelle Willingham led Belgreen with 22 points, followed by Dacota Green with 17 points. Willingham scored six in the third quarter and seven in the fourth quarter and went 10-for-11 from the free throw line.
