The Lady Bulldogs had their best chance to score early in the second half when Rachel Torres’ attempt hit the crossbar.

“Those things happen, especially when you get down and you start pressing,” said Kingman head coach David Kopecky. “… On a normal day, she probably would have made that, but she was trying so hard to make it that she cut the top bar.”

“I’m really proud of the girls,” Kopecky said. “They don’t give up. They’re fighters. That’s good because we’ll get better if we keep fighting.”
