ACA 61,

Orient-Macks. 58

ORIENT — A chance for a win over Ankeny Christian Academy slipped away from Orient-Macksburg here on Monday, as the Bulldogs lost 61-58.

Ankeny Christian Academy held a 28-20 lead over the Bulldogs at halftime, but Orient-Macksburg battled back and took a 40-39 lead into the fourth quarter.

“We came out to a slow start, but had a strong showing in the second half to get back into the game,” head coach Kelli Goodale said. “We had momentum going, and Morgan (James) tried to keep us going, sinking a three, but getting injured in the process which gave them back some momentum.”

James returned to the game after suffering the injury, but Shannon Eads left the game later with a concussion.

James, who led the Bulldogs with 17 points, had a chance on a buzzer-beater, but couldn’t get it to fall.

Eads added 14 points and 11 rebounds for Orient-Macksburg, while Lisa Moss scored 11 points and Gabby Jenkins pitched in 10 points with 16 rebounds.
