BOSCOBEL - The Boscobel girls’ basketball team lost to top seeded Mineral Point, 27-67, in conference play on Tuesday night on the home court.

The Pointers were able to keep the Lady Bulldogs on the defense, while denying them possession of the ball. Boscobel was able to capitalize somewhat on the Pointers fouling, scoring on 13 of 18 attempts at the free throw line.

Alyssa Davis led in scoring with 13 points.

The win/loss left the Bulldogs with a 1-7 conference record and 2-12 overall.

Boscobel will travel to Darlington for conference play Friday, Jan. 29. They host Wauzeka-Steuben on Monday, Feb. 1. Varsity play gets underway both nights at 7:30 p.m.

Bulldogs v. Panthers

The Boscobel girls’ basketball team lost to Iowa-Grant, 55-59, in conference play on Thursday, Jan. 21.

“We played a very competitive game against Iowa-Grant,” said Coach Jason Hill. “It was their Parent’s Night, so there was a lot of energy in the gym.”

The Lady Bulldogs held the lead several times in the first half but found themselves down by two at the half.  The second half was much like the first, although they hit a bit of a cold spell, which put them in a hole. 

“We were down by ten at one point, but like we’ve done all season, we battled back,” said Hill. “We battled all the way to within one point, but just couldn’t get over the hump.”

Freshman Leah Wacker led in scoring with a career high of 27, followed by sophomore Alyssa Davis with nine. 

The win/loss left the Bulldogs with a 1-6 conference record and 2-11 overall.
