Lady Bulldogs drop pair of close ones in Hotop Classic


Two tough losses were the result for the Mexico girls on Saturday during the Chris Hotop Classic.

The Lady Bulldogs lost their first game to Chillicothe 2-1 after allowing two second-half goals. Mexico picked up its first goal and lead of the season in the contest.

In the third-place game, Mexico tied the game at 1 one minute after Owensville's goal in the second half. The game eventually lasted through one 10-minute overtime period and a round of penalty kicks but ended after the extra sixth turn of kicks. Owensville's Brooke Jahnsen helped her team win the round 3-2 following successful kicks from Mexico's Lizzie Joiner and Jamilet Medina.

Claire Hudson scored both goals for the Lady Bulldogs during the day.
