On Wednesday, the Hazard Lady Bulldogs held a basketball scrimmage and invited in several teams. The Lady Bulldogs concluded the evening with the Prestonsburg Lady Blackcats.

The Lady Bulldogs got off to a slow start and fell behind. However, the Lady Blackcats could not take advantage, and did not build a sizable lead.

Hazard was able to get on track midway through the 20 minute half, and with 6:30 remaining, the Lady Bulldogs had taken the 12-8 lead. Both teams picked up the pace going into the half, but it was Hazard that went into the locker room with the 25-17 advantage.

Midway through the second half, Hazard was able to push their lead to double-digits, and at one point they had built the lead to 15-points. Prestonsburg had one more rally left in them, and eventually cut the lead to seven points (38-31).

With time running out in the game, the Lady Bulldogs began to take charge, and began to run up the score. Hazard finished with a flurry, and ended the game with the 53-34 win.
