The Ranburne girls split their final two Class 2A, Area 10 games and finished second in the area at 6-2. The Bulldogs (16-8) will meet No. 3 seed Pleasant Valley in the Area 10 tournament semifinals on February 6 at Woodland at 6 p.m. The area championship game will be February 8 at 7 p.m.

On January 24, Woodland defeated Ranburne 72-34 at Ranburne. Bulldogs’ coach Tim Smith said the contest felt much closer than the final score indicated, describing it as “much better than the first time we played them.”

“I was well pleased with the effort. … We actually played with them in spurts. I thought we played much better this time around, especially from our guard play,” Smith said.

Jesse Ralston led Ranburne with nine points and made four steals. Lacey Smith scored eight points and added five rebounds and three steals. Hali Wilson recorded six points, four rebounds and two assists. Alyssa Smith had five points and six boards. Indiana Morgan, Kat Runels and Hannah Phillips each scored two points. Phillips and Runels grabbed two rebounds apiece and Morgan had three assists.

“The turnover factor hurt us some but we got some turnovers against them, too,” Smith noted.

A home game with Ohatchee on January 27 ended with the Bulldogs coming out on top by a 54-29 count. Ranburne took the first quarter 16-4 and the third 14-5.

Alyssa Smith had a double-double against the Indians with 14 points and 12 rebounds. She also blocked three shots. Ralston scored 11 points. Morgan ended with nine points and two assists. Wilson and Lacey Smith each had seven points. Smith added six assists, four steals and two rebounds. Wilson grabbed three rebounds and had two steals. Phillips had six points and two assists. Runels finished with six rebounds and two steals and Emily Hall added two rebounds.
