New Franklin junior Aly Hundley dialed up everything right Tuesday night in the opening round of the Glasgow Tournament against the Fayette Falcons.

The Lady Bulldogs, 2-0 on the season, struggled offensively in the first quarter against Fayette while leading by just one at 9-8.

New Franklin coach Chris McGowan said this was a typical game for early in the year.  
“We struggled to put together four good quarters,” McGowan said.  “We started poorly and ended poorly but played pretty well throughout the middle part of the game.  Aly Hundley really shot the ball well and that certainly helped our cause.  I also thought Derian Dodson did a nice job of rebounding and making good shots.  We struggled at the end of the game with our defensive intensity and ball control.  Once again we have some things to work on in practice and get ready for a very good Glasgow team.”
In addition to scoring 23 points, Hundley also had seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Derian Dodson finished the game with eight points, 12 rebounds and three assists while Madi Lyons added eight points, four steals and three rebounds, Jasmyne Boggs with seven points, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal, Aislinn Himmelberg with four points, four rebounds, two steals and one assist, Brittany Anderson with two points, two rebounds and one assist and Sara Montgomery with one point, four rebounds and one assist.

Glasgow coach Molly Monnig said the girls were very aggressive defensively and offensively in the first half.  
“We shot the ball very well from the three point line in the first half also,” Monnig said.  “I was proud of our effort.  We mad a lot of  hustle plays which led to some easy baskets in the open court.  Lindsey Kopp played very well defensively off of the bench and gave us a lot of energy.”
