Carl Junction took the lead back in the third quarter, and held a four point advantage going to the fourth.

In the fourth quarter the Bulldogs stretched the lead to as much as nine, but the Tigers came back and made it a three point game with under a minute left. A Halli Bartlsmeyer three-pointer missed just before the buzzer for the Tigers and the Bulldogs hung on to win it 57-54.

Katie Scott had a big night for CJ, scoring 26 points, including 10 at the free throw line. Megan Scott was the only other Bulldog in double figures, scoring 11 on the night. Taylor Hughes finished the game with 8 points,

Next up for Carl Junction, they'll be on the road against #5 Branson Friday night.
