LEXINGTON - The Burgin girls are one win away from a repeat title in the Bluegrass Conference Tournament.
The Bulldogs knocked off Model 52-45 Thursday in the tournament's semifinals. They play host Sayre at 6 p.m. Saturday in the finals. Sayre beat Kentucky School for the Deaf 79-16 last night.
"It was kind of a rough game. We fouled a lot, we just can't get in sync," Burgin coach Keith Monson said. "We've had quite a bit of sickness and injuries, and seems like we're all out of shape but we turned it up when we had to."
Taylor Bottoms scored 18 and had 7 rebounds, Bev Harris scored 13 and Amanda Carey chipped in with 11 points. For the game, Burgin was 17 of 43 from floor (39 percent) and went 13-for-20 at the line.
