LAKE MILLS, Iowa — Carlie Christianson scored 16 points, and Megan Johnson added 11 for Lake Mills, but it wasn’t enough as a poor third quarter doomed the Bulldogs girls’ basketball team in a 57-45 loss to Forest City.

The Bulldogs (4-8) trailed 14-12 after one quarter and 28-25 at half but were outscored 17-6 in the third.

“The girls played a better ballgame tonight where they kept their intensity high,” Bulldogs coach Beth Van Roekel said. “We missed some key baskets down low that could have changed the game.”
