M-U falls in first round of BGC

MELCHER — The Moulton-Udell Lady Eagles girls’ basketball team lost 51-24 against Melcher-Dallas on Saturday in the first round of the Bluegrass Conference Tournament.

Moulton trailed 20-13 at the end of the first half. Melcher would outscore the Lady Eagles 31-11 in the second half to take the overwhelming first round win.

“I felt we played fairly well tonight,” Moulton-Udell head coach Jason Ogden said. “We were more aggressive in going to the rim and attacked the basket more. Our defense in the first was very good. They turned up their pressure and adjusted to get better looks in the second half.”

On Friday, Moulton lost 50-25 against Iowa Christian Academy after the Lady Eagles got off to a slow start with a three point first quarter. Moulton trailed by 15 points at the end of the first quarter. Iowa Christian Academy took a 26-8 lead into the second half.

“We continue to get off to slow starts,” Ogden said. “One quarter is usually the big difference in most of our games. The kids have improve a lot and I’m happy with the progress we are making. On offense we need to get into a better flow and move the ball more.”

Moulton-Udell (4-11, 2-7 in BGC) will host Mormon Trail today in the consolation round of the Bluegrass Conference Tournament.
