The Ionia Bulldogs travelled to Mason for their first game of the season. We knew going in it would be a challenge with so much time off. Ionia started off well in the first quarter and were only down by 1, 8-9. The second and third quarters showed how time can affect a game. At halftime Mason was leading 20-10. In the third quarter Mason went into a zone defense and the team struggled to make outside shots. At the end of the third Ionia was down 12-32. The Bulldogs outscored Mason in the fourth 10-6. The girls continued to fight throughout the night but were unable to keep up with Mason. The final score was 22-38. Leading scorers were Melayna Braman with 10 points, Kara Kramer-Lake with 4, Hailey Fuentes with 4, Jenna Wohlscheid 2 and Rajalyaj Esquivel with 2. Next game is home Wednesday against Fowlerville.
