Lady Bulldogs Beat Beaver for Third Time
01/16/2010

FORGAN, OK- It is often said in sports that one of the toughest things to do is beat the same team three times in a season. Forgan was able to accomplish that feat Friday night on their home floor with a 37-28 victory over their rival Beaver who is just 6 miles down the road.

Forgan Head Coach Brett Trippet said beating a team three times in a season may be tough, but that beating Beaver anytime is an accomplishment.

“It is really tough to beat Beaver anytime. We’re back door rivals. It is a good game every year,” Trippet said.

Trippet stressed after the game that he was very pleased with the play of his two seniors.

“I was really proud of my seniors Jaci (McGill) and Miranda Lopez. I don’t know if Miranda scored a whole lot of points but just the leadership she had out their defensively and offensively on some things, and Jaci really took the game over and did a good job of handling the ball and doing a lot of things .”

McGill led the Lady Bulldogs in the win with 14 points. Lopez along with Lindsey Trippet and Samantha Leisher scored six. Kenzi Taylor added five.

Beaver led the game 8-6 after one quarter of play. However, Forgan went on a run and took a 19-14 halftime lead and never trailed again. Beaver did tie the game up at 25 after three quarters, but the Lady Bulldogs outscored them 12-3 to close out the game.

Beaver was led by sophomore Tristan McQuitty who scored 14 in the loss. Junior Anna McDonald added seven.

After the game Trippet talked about how important of a win it is to knock of their biggest rival.

“It is always important to play well against Beaver. It’s a fun game, so anytime you can win it is a success.”

Despite the big win though Trippet feels his team can play a lot better.

“We have a lot of things we can do better. Hopefully we will play our best basketball at the end.”

Beaver will next play at Turpin on Tuesday. Forgan remains unbeaten on the season and ranked #7 in the state. They will host Balko tonight for Homecoming.
