CRIDERSVILLE -— The visiting Ada girls basketball team rallied from a sluggish start to defeat former conference foe Perry 49-36 Monday evening.
The purple and gold evened their record at 5-5 and snapped a two-game losing skid with the win. Meanwhile, the Lady Commodores dropped to 1-10 with the defeat.
"We got off to a bad start, but the press got us going," said third-year Bulldog head coach Bill Taflinger.
Ada trailed 14-10 after one period but turned that around with a press to grab a 20-17 halftime lead.
The Bulldogs extended that edge to 34-26 after three periods and outscored Perry 15-10 in the final stanza to post the road win.
Senior guard Alyssa Vore led Ada with a dozen points, while classmate guard Haley Wyss contributed 11 markers. Juniors Maddie Gossard and Sydney Newland each added nine points.
Ada (0-3 NWC) visits Spencerville (2-7, 0-2 NWC) in a league matchup Thursday evening. The Bulldogs are 3-3 on the road this season. Ada then hosts McComb Saturday afternoon in a non-league matchup.
