JEFFERSON OH- Poland has a tendency to get in to defensive battles with the style of basketball they play. That was never as true as it was on Thursday as they traveled up to Jefferson. The Bulldogs needed every bit of that branded defense as the Falcons held them to 2 points in the fourth quarter. There was no comeback to be had though as the Bulldogs held Jefferson to 0 fourth quarter points. That let Poland get out of Jefferson with a 39-27 win.
Ava Nicholudis and Mary Brant both led the way for Poland scoring 11 points each. Katie McDonald wasn’t too far behind as she chipped in 9 points.
Darbie Skytta and Tatum Bordeaux both led Jefferson with 7 points a piece.
Poland now looks ahead to a huge matchup on the road in Struthers as they try to protect first place in the Fieldhouse. Jefferson will get right at it on Monday as they host Girard.
