WC falls to Dugger

DUGGER — The Washington Catholic girls basketball team played well for three quarters Thursday night, however it was the fourth that made all the difference.

The Cardinals (1-16) lost 49-37 to Dugger (7-6) after managing just four points in the final quarter, despite a game-high 20 points and 15 rebounds from senior Elizabeth Perkins.

The Cardinals and Bulldogs were knotted at 10 after one quarter and Dugger led 21-19 at halftime. The Cardinals shot 30 percent (8-26) in the first half, while holding the Bulldogs to 28 percent shooting in the game’s first 16 minutes.

In the third quarter, the Cardinals came out their best offensive quarter of the game to outscore the Bulldogs 14-12 and tie the game at 33 heading into the final quarter. In the final quarter, however, the Cardinals struggled to get going offensively and were outscored 16-4 to suffer the 12-point defeat. Dugger upped its shooting to 32 percent in the second half and Washington Catholic came in a 31 percent.

The Cardinals outrebounded the Bulldogs 37-36. Perkins 20 points and 15 rebounds led the Cardinals. Kaitlyn Craney had seven points and five rebounds, Mary Anne Wichman had six points and two rebounds, Sydney Dunbar and Kasey Ivy had two points apiece.

The game was the final between the two teams as Dugger High School is closing at the end of the year. WC visits Rock Creek today at 1 p.m.
