WINSLOW, Ariz. - The Winslow Lady Bulldogs got two important wins Jan. 27 and Jan. 29 in their effort to win a berth in the playoffs.

Justine Butterfield led all scorers with 13 points and Jenna Yazzie was also in double figures with 12 points. Nine Lady Bulldogs scored while Higley had no player with more than four points.

On Friday the Lady Bulldogs defeated the Window Rock Lady Scouts 58-43 in Winslow.

The win improved Winslow's record to 11-15 for the season and dropped Window Rock's record to a still very impressive 19-8. This win was important for the Lady Bulldogs and may help them earn a berth in the post season playoffs.

Winslow dominated in the first quarter and sped to a double digit 21-6 lead.

The second quarter was evenly played and low scoring. Winslow took a 29-13 lead into the locker room at the half.

The third quarter was also evenly played and ended with the Lady Bulldogs leading 41-24. Window Rock cut the lead to 10 points early in the final period but Winslow pushed it back up to ensure the victory.
