Ionia hosted St. Johns. This was the second match up of the season. In the first game Ionia was able to hold off St. Johns and win by 8. This game was no different. The Bulldogs priority was to start strong and bring energy. They did just that. At the end of the first quarter Ionia was up 14-5. In the second St. Johns did a great job stepping up their defense which put pressure on us. Ionia was able to keep that lead going into half time, 22-13. At halftime we talked about continuing to play hard and win each quarter at a time. End of the third Ionia continued to build their lead, 35-20. St. Johns picked up their full court pressure and hit a couple of threes to cut it close. Ionia was able to hang on and win 45-36.
