LaFayette’s girls basketball team continued to struggle on Thursday as the Lady Bulldogs were dominated by Trinity 51-6. 

The Wildcats were in control of the game from the opening tipoff. Trinity started the game on a 30-0 run. LaFayette finally found its first basket as Jayla Hooks scored with one second left in the first quarter. 

Trinity never let up from there. The Wildcats held the Bulldogs scoreless in the second period and took a 46-2 lead into halftime.

The second half was shortened by a running clock, and the periods were also shortened from eight minutes to four minutes. 

Hooks, Aronique Kyles and Paris Holloway each scored two points for LaFayette. Kyles also had a good game on defense with seven steals. 

It was a tough day for LaFayette on the offensive side. The Bulldogs missed all of their five attempts from behind the arc. LaFayette also only took one trip to the charity stripe and missed both free throw attempts. 

The biggest problem in the game for LaFayette was turnovers. The Bulldogs finished with 25 turnovers, and most of those turnovers led to easy points for Trinity. 

The loss on Thursday dropped LaFayette’s record to 1-5 on the season. The Bulldogs hope to make some major improvements as they face Trinity again on the road on Saturday.
