Scoring double digits in three out of four quarters, the Bulldogs nearly doubled the score of their opponents Friday night.
The Lake Mills girls’ basketball team defeated Garner-Hayfield/Ventura 71-36 Friday in Garner, Iowa.
“It was an explosive first half offensively for the team tonight,” said Lake Mills head coach Thad Evans. “We did an exceptional job of moving the basketball to find open looks at the rim, and we converted.”

The Bulldogs dominated the Cardinals 43-21 at halftime.
“With a solid lead at halftime we were able to play the entire bench good minutes and work on some things in the half court that we think will benefit us the deeper we get into the season,” said Evans.
Junior Jewell Gasteiger led the Bulldogs’ offense with 21 points. Also scoring in double digits were sophomore Laura Knudtson with 12 points and junior Lexi Groe with 11 points. Groe led the team with nine rebounds, as well.
Next, Lake Mills (6-2 overall, 3-2 Top of Iowa Conference) will host North Union at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.
