Bulldogs tripped up by Calvary

MEADVILLE — The Tidioute Lady Bulldogs used a big second quarter to take a lead at the half, only to see Calvary return the favor in the third and go on to win, 50-41.

Nakiesha Krouse scored a game high 25 points and added seven steals for Tidioute, which led by six going into the locker room.

Sunny Henderson added 10 rebounds for the Lady Bulldogs, who take on Rocky Grove next Thursday in JV/Varsity action.
