POTOMAC — It was over for the Wheaton Knights girls basketball team Tuesday night by the end of the first quarter as the Churchill Bulldogs started strong and never let off. In the end, the Bulldogs emerged triumphant against the Knights, the final score 50-20.
The night was a rough one for the Knights. They didn’t reach double digits on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter and made a total of nine points in the first three quarters of the game.
Up until a drastic about-face in the fourth quarter, the Knights scored two, three and four points in the first, second and third quarter, respectively. High pressure from the Bulldogs and missed buckets shackled the Knights throughout the game, but the turnovers fatally dented their armor.
The Bulldogs, on the other hand, were coasting throughout most of the game. By neutralizing the Knights’ star senior point guard Crystal Jones, they were able to maneuver more freely and leave the visitors scrambling to come up with a different plan of attack.
