That didn’t take long – winter postpones first game

Early weather forecasts – I like the Dick Frymire, now the Dick Frymire family forecast – are for the most part calling for a long, harsh and wet (white) winter.

If the way this 2018-19 roundball season has started out, that prediction might be spot on.

Even before the basketball season had started for our Lady Bulldogs, everything changed.

What should have been a season opener between the Lady Bulldogs and Garrard County last Tuesday night, a winter storm that moved across Kentucky just north of our area, coated the ground with a dusting of snow, and ended with a coating of frozen rain and sleet.

Needless to say, officials opted to keep the team bus off of the road and the players and coaches safe, and the season opener was postponed.

The Garrard County matchup between the Lady Lions has now been moved to Saturday, January 19, with the JV girls to tip at 3:00.

Lady Dawgs get off to a slow start, Dawgs move to 2-0

The Lady Dawgs and Bulldogs traveled to nearly the far western end of our 4th Region on Friday night to take on their counterparts at Franklin-Simpson High School, the Lady Lions and Lions, respectively.

For our Lady Bulldogs, their game went south in a hurry and long story short, they are off to an 0-1 start going into the stretch of three games on tap this week, Tuesday night at Monroe County, Friday night hosting Metcalfe County and Saturday in Bowling Green against Greenwood.

Coach Darrell Thompson undoubtedly spent the weekend and week in regroup mode and we’ll see how the Lady Dawgs come out as this week’s games progress.

The Bulldogs on the other hand came home with a win from Franklin-Simpson to take their record to a 2-0 mark as we head into this week’s slate of games.

The Dawgs will face the exact same lineup of opponents as the Lady Dawgs through Saturday, with the Greenwood game being played at a different venue in Bowling Green, at South Warren with a 4:00 p.m. tip.

Told you this was going to get busy – but it’s also going to get fun in a hurry.

Get on board now – these young players need to know their county fans are behind them.
