On an evening where the Lady Builders struggled to maintain ball security, the Bulldogs answered with 20 forced turnovers with 11 steals converting those into 17 points.
Jazmyne Laskey, sophomore guard, led the Lady Builders scoring effort with 12 points, along with four assists and five boards in a matchup fruitful with opportunities.
A strong third quarter performance propelled the Bulldogs to a comfortable finish, outscoring the Builders 17-4 in the process.
