I don't understand why the writer of this article boasts of the win from Winslow Lady Bulldogs to Monument Valley Lady Mustangs claming "Bulldogs chewed up Mustangs", when the next subtitle claims "Mustangs gallop to win close game". That sounds like a bias judgement with one win to Winslow over MV, and an understatement of a loss delt to the Bulldogs by MV. MV Lady mustangs and Winslow Lady Bulldogs was the real "close game" as opposed to the the Mustang (Young Men's) Team dominating the Bulldogs (Young Men's Team) in the last quarter of the game. A reporter should not make dramatic remarks of one win of the game (Ladies Game) as opposed to undermining the win dealt by the other, which in fact was the more "dramatic win". (Young Men's Game). This article only demonstrates ignorance and bias opinions, which also does not support equality between the two schools which are both great basketball producting programs.
