Bogota Basketball

   The Bogota Lady Bucs stepped up their game against a bigger opponent in the form of the Ridgefield Royals. With two of the Royals players taller than the anyone on the Lady Bucs team, The Lady Bucs used their quickness, and strong passing to earn a 64-40 victory at Speary Gym. Bogota used a multiply pass attack in order to keep Ridgefield from using their size advantage.Tempers were strong in the first half as on of the Ridgefield players received a technical foul after disagreeing with a call by one of the officials. Unfortunately some of the visiting fans also had to be warn about their behavior in the stands.  The patience offensive of the Lady Bucs gave Bogota the lead at half time.
 The third quarter started slowly for both team, until Bogota exploded  to jump out to a 20 point advantage with one quarter left to play. There was strong, and physical  through-out the game with players on both sides ending up on the floor fighting for possession. When The Royals tried to press in order to close the gap the Lady Bucs held strong. With  Jillian Marino adding to her game high 24 points with some breakaways  in response.
  The next league game is Monday 30 Jan against Rutherford at Speary Gym.
  The Boys were not as fortunate at Ridgefield losing their third game in a row 59-48. Their next game is also at Speary Gym on Tues. 31- Jan. against Leonia.
