WAITSBURG - Kristin Potter led the Waitsburg-Prescott girls to a 55-35 victory over the Dayton Bulldogs Monday night in Southeast 2B League play.

Potter scored 19 points for W-P, with Ronnie Hulce and Dionna Baker both adding 11.

Dayton pulled within 16-10 on Kayla Huxoll's bucket with three seconds left in the quarter.

Lexie Ramirez of Dayton brought some freshman power, tying the game at 16-all on free throws with 5:39 left on the clock, and then scored a 2-pointer to give the Bulldogs the lead.

W-P (6-2 SE2B, 13-3 overall) took back the lead, and then Baker scored two free throws of her own to give W-P a 21-18 lead.

W-P's Enedina Fuentes took a steal for a break away layup to bring W-P's lead to 27-18.

W-P continued to keep its lead and ended the third quarter up 35-27.

W-P's Potter sunk a 3-pointer with 5:45 seconds on the clock in the fourth quarter to move ahead, 44-29.

Dayton was assessed a technical foul for having six players on the court, and W-P's Samura Miller made a breakaway layup with 38 seconds on the clock and was fouled for a 3-point play.

"I thought we came out and played really hard," Bulldog coach Clayton Strong said. "We went cold and W-P got a lot of experience.

"I expected them to play straight-up man (man-to-man defense), but their zone bothered us a little bit. But we adjusted and did our best," he said. "They are the league champs and they proved that tonight.

"We didn't lose anything by losing tonight. We will most likely be playing for the 4 or 5 (playoff) spot this year," Strong finished.

W-P plays at DeSales at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Dayton (3-5 in SE2B play, 5-11 overall) plays at Walla Walla Valley Academy tonight.
