Dayton's full court pressure holds off W-P

DAYTON — The Dayton girls basketball team overcame a poor shooting night to down Waitsburg-Prescott 42-26 on Friday.

The Bulldogs (13-7, 6-4 in Southeast 2B) only knocked down 14 of their 55 shot attempts, but the Dayton defense did the heavy lifting in the win. Dayton restricted W-P to only 11-of-31 shooting on the strength of its full-court pressure.

“We were able to force some turnovers and get out in the open floor,” Dayton coach Clayton Strong said. “A lot of our problems were in the half court — hitting shots when they made us play in the half court. The defense we played in the full court I was pleased with.”

Waitsburg-Prescott could only manage 10 points by halftime, and after scoring 13 in the third, could only come up with three points in the final frame. Dayton’s Madison Mings led the Bulldogs with 12 points. Sarah Phillips added 11 points on a pair of 3-pointers.

Samantha Fedderson led W-P with 12 points, including six in the third quarter.

Dayton opens the Southeast 2B tournament with a game on Friday against either Tri-Cities Prep or Asotin, based off a tiebreaker.
