WINSLOW, Ariz. - The Winslow Lady Bulldogs won their own Winslow Winter Classic with a 57-37 victory over the Tuba City Lady Warriors in Winslow Dec. 21. They ended the 2013 portion of their season with a 7-3 record.

Winslow scored the first nine points of the championship game and led 9-2 at the end of the first quarter. They maintained that margin until the closing minutes of the game. The score was 27-16 at the half and 41-30 after three quarters.

Halle Hayes led Winslow with a career high 21 points. Shandiin Armao also scored in double figures with 15 points for the Lady Bulldogs. Marcella Joe played well and scored six points. Hayes, Armao and Joe made the All-Tournament Team. Sydney Tsinigini led Tuba City with 10 points. Shauntea Chee and Samytha Parrish each scored eight for the Lady Warriors. Tsinigine and Tierra Littleman made the All-Tournament Team from Tuba City.

Earlier in the tournament the Lady Bulldogs defeated the Snowflake Lady Lobos 53-28 Dec. 20 in an easy victory in the first round. The win improved Winslow's record to 5-3 and got them a match against the Monument Valley Lady Mustangs on Dec. 21. Monument Valley defeated Westwood 50-45 to advance to the semifinals.

The Lady Bulldogs built a commanding 18-2 first quarter lead against the Mustangs and were never threatened in a game that was more one-sided than the final score would indicate. The lead was 33-7 at the half and 40-18 after three quarters.

Armao was the only player in double figure for either team with 13 points for Winslow. All 13 Lady Decker led Snowflake with nine points. Only seven Lady Lobos scored.

In other action Dec. 19, Chinle defeated Joseph City 69-24 and Snowflake bested Hopi 56-32. On Dec. 20 Tuba City cruised by Cholla 64-13, Window Rock edged Chinle 63-56 and Monument Valley topped Westwood 50-45. In losers' bracket games on Dec. 20 Hopi topped Cholla and Westwood beat Joseph City.

On Dec. 21 the Lady Bulldogs put together a surprisingly easy 46-23 win over the Monument Valley Lady Mustangs in a semifinal game. Most of the fourth quarter was played with a running clock as Winslow had a lead sufficient for the running clock rule to come into effect. The win earned Winslow a berth in the championship game against the Tuba City Lady Warriors, 78-55 winners over the Window Rock Lady Scouts.

The Lady Bulldogs led 11-5 after the first quarter and 21-12 at the half. The margin was 38-14 after three quarters.

Armao led all scorers with 14 points for Winslow. Hayes was also in double figures for the Lady Bulldogs with 12 points. Ohivah Shirley led Monument Valley with 13 points but only three Lady Mustangs scored.

Window Rock won third place with a 57-47 win over Monument Valley.

In losers' bracket games on Dec. 21, Joseph City beat Cholla 57-42 and Chinle beat Hopi with no score available on that game. Snowflake beat Westwood and Chinle later won the consolation championship over Snowflake but scores were not available from those games. Westwood beat Hopi 46-35.
