The San Saba Lady Dillos hosted the Lady Dragons from Bangs on Tuesday night. Bangs came out hot and jumped out to a 14-5 lead early in the 1st quarter. However, the Lady Dillos did not get discouraged but instead fought their way back into the game. San Saba took a 17-16 lead into halftime when Kayla Kutin hit a shot right before the buzzer sounded. The game was back and forth for much of the 2nd half, but the Lady Dillos finally pulled away with 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter. The Lady Dillos defeated Bangs by a score of 42-35. I was extremely proud of the girls and the way we battled. We started the game off slow but instead of getting rattled we kept our composure and gave ourselves a chance to win the game.
