CIA Eagles sweep Bristol Bay

Nikiski girls still dominate hoops

Posted: Monday, February 26, 2001

The Nikiski Bulldogs girls basketball team continued their dominance of their opponents as they pummeled the Houston Hawks with a 43-25 3A District III drubbing Saturday.

The Bulldogs used their trademark stifling defense to smother the Hawks, allowing only six points in the entire first half and preventing all Houston players from scoring into double digits.

"Well, it was a great defensive game," Nikiski coach Ward Romans said. "It was our second day on the road and I think we did a nice job."

The Bulldogs followed the reliable lead of Laura Berdahl, who scored 15 points, while Karen Rabung added 12 and Sally Glaze chipped in 11.

"Our offense just looks to execute and take open shots," Romans said. "We missed a lot of open shots and that is what kept it close for the first three quarters."

The Bulldogs stepped to a 19-6 first-half lead before walking away with the victory. With regional tournaments a stone's throw away, the Nikiski Bulldogs will enjoy their last two home games of the season, hosting the Anchorage Christian Lions Friday before taking on the Grace Christian Grizzlies Saturday.
