The Boling Lady Bulldogs made it to the championship game in their home tournament but fell to the Brookshire Royal Lady Falcons Saturday afternoon.

En route to the championship game, the Lady Bulldogs beat Louise, Tidehaven and Bay City.

With their (3-1) play, the Lady Bulldogs earned two all-tournament players in sophomore guard Kenna Gibson and junior post Madison Malone.

During the tournament, Lady Bulldogs coach Jonathan Gibson earned his 200th career win with Boling defeating Tidehaven.

Gibson since returning to Boling is 62-35.

Malone had a dominant tournament, averaging 13.5 points per game, with 20 points against Louise. Gibson added 11.5 points per game, and was the only Boling player to have double-digit scoring in all four games.

“We have a pretty young team right now,” Malone said. “We’ve made some mistakes in the beginning (of the year) but we’re learning from it every day and it’s been pretty good so far.”
