BDS found their stride early on the offensive end outscoring the Mustangs 28-12 in the opening half.
The Lady Eagles had nine girls contribute on the offensive end. BDS was able to hold the Mustangs to only 12 points in the second half as well.  The Eagles were lead by senior Jaycie Hoins with 18 points.  Freshman Lexi Kadel and Carley Elznic contributed eight and seven points, respectively.  BDS improved to 15-6 and went on to play Heartland in the Sub-district final on Thursday night.
The Lady Eagles got off to a fast start Thursday night in the Class D1-2 sub-district final and never looked back.  The Eagles cruised to a 51-25 victory over the Heartland Huskies at Fillmore Central.
The Eagles opened the game with an 11-0 run, thanks in part to a solid performance on the defensive end. The Huskies had a hard time breaking the full court press, turning the ball over five times in the opening period.  BDS held the Heartland scoreless until the 2:20 mark in the first quarter and were up 16-7 at the end of the opening period.
The second quarter was more of the same.  The Eagles were able to force four straight turnovers in the period off of their press and scored eight consecutive points.  The Eagles ended the quarter on a 10-2 run to lead 28-11 at half.
Heartland came out of halftime applying more pressure on the defensive end.  The Eagles kept their composure and were able to expand their lead with the scoring efforts of Jaycie Hoins, who was 6-for-6 from the field in the third quarter.
BDS had a 47-20 lead heading into the final period.  In the end, the Huskies just didn’t have an answer for the defensive pressure applied by the Eagles and their balanced scoring attack on the offensive end.  Junior Catherine Mick lead the Eagles with 18 points.  Hoins added 15 and freshman Lexi Kadel contributed eight.
With the win the Eagles improved to 16-6 on the season and will play Friend in the district final this Friday, February 27,  at Centennial High School in Utica.  Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. with the winner advancing to this year's girls' Class D-1 State Basketball Tournament.
