WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - Both the Winslow Lady Bulldogs and the Bulldog boys team picked up big wins at Window Rock Feb. 4 by clobbering the Lady Scouts and Scouts in basketball games that increased their chances of a good position in the state playoff picture.

The Lady Bulldogs' win improved the team's record to 19-4 for the season. The surprisingly easy Winslow win dropped the Lady Scouts to 19-6 for the season.

The Lady Bulldogs had a narrow 18-15 lead at the end of the first quarter but used a huge second quarter and a tight defense to build a commanding 37-17 halftime lead. The margin grew to 56-33 by the end of the third quarter.

Halle Hayes led all scorers with 16 points for the Lady Bulldogs. Shandiin Armao with 15 points, Jacey Sangster with 13 points and Kaelyn Bitsoi and Tannon Tom with 10 points apiece were all also in double digits for Winslow. Caleigh Curley led Window Rock with nine points and Naomi Klah had eight for the Lady Scouts.

In the night game that followed the Winslow Bulldogs defeated the Window Rock Scouts 78-61.

The win improved Winslow's record to 20-10 for the season. The win was the fifth straight for the Bulldogs and left them with an important game at Snowflake on Thursday to finish the regular season.

The Bulldogs had a narrow 18-14 lead at the end of the first quarter but used a high scoring second period to build a comfortable 48-33 halftime advantage. The margin was a still commanding 64-42 lead after three quarters of play.

Stevin Nelson led all scorers with 20 points for Winslow. Milland Thomas was also in double figures for the Bulldogs with 10 points. Myron Wauneka led Window Rock with 14 points and Jacob Emerson was also in double figures for the Scouts with 13 points.
