Bogota Basketball

    Bogota lady Bucs Coach Sean Gaffney again had his team start the game with a disciplined passing game, this time against the Rutherford  Bulldogs. Again his plan worked as Bogota won the game 41-35 at Speary Gym. The Lady Bucs took a nine point lead into the half time break. The third quarter began quick as leading scorer Jillian Marino  score the first points of the half , then stole the inbound pass for another bucket for 4 points within just a few seconds. This would set the tone for the just of the game as both teams defense would force turnovers leading to many points both ways.
   Rutherford, taking advantage of their defensive presser, cut the lead to only a few baskets as the third quarter ended. The rest between periods help the Lady Bucs regain their focus, and retake control of the game. Bogota built up enough of a lead to force Rutherford into fouling often to try and get the ball back. Fortunately clutch Free-throws by Ms. Marino ,and Casey Murphy send the lady Bucs to a record of 9-5
  The Lady Bucs next game is Tomorrow 31- Jan. at Leonia, While the Boys host Leonia at Speary Gym tomorrow. Both games tip-off at 7:00p
