The Bulldogs held a slight advantage at the end of each of the first three quarters. The hosts took a 13-11 lead out of the gate, went ahead 26-22 at halftime, and remained in front 34-32 heading into the fourth quarter. LHS would rally in outscoring Green 14-10 in the final eight minutes to take the sectional final rematch.

Mullett’s put-back with 1:17 left in the game proved to be the game winner giving Louisville the go ahead 46-44 lead. A few possessions later, the Bulldogs looked for a game-tying basket off an in-bound with 1.7 seconds remaining. Mullett’s tight defense on the right elbow forced an errant shot to graze of the right side of the rim as the girls in blue celebrated victory.

Lingenhoel Group - Arden and Lisa Lingenhoel - Cutler Real Estate AdGreen was led by Alyssa Ziehler who scored a 10 of her team-high 18 points in the first quarter and finished with a team leading 7 boards. Olivia Payne also tallied 11 and Kendall Anenson tacked on 8.

The victory snaps the Leopards five game losing streak against the Bulldogs. Louisville last won at Green 44-39 on January 7, 2015 prior. The Leopards now trail the all-time series 4-8 against the Bulldogs, but the series is an even 2-2 when played inside the confines of Green High School.
