Last week, the Hazard Lady Bulldogs traveled to Stanton to take on the Powell County Lady Pirates. The Lady Bulldogs battled a strong opponent in the early going, but eventually wore them down and went on to the win.

The Lady Bulldogs struggled with the Lady Pirates in the early minutes of the game, and finished the first period with the scant 19-18 lead. Hazard wore their opponent down in the second period, and went on to a double-digit lead and a 38-26 halftime advantage.

Hazard went ice cold in the third period, and gave up a few points off their advantage (47-38). However, in the fourth quarter, the Lady Bulldogs left no question about the outcome of the game. They went on to collect the 72-54 win.
