The Boyd Lady Jackets gave the Bowie Lady Jackrabbits their first scare in District 8-3A play Tuesday night.

Leading at the half and into the third quarter, Boyd was on the verge of upsetting Bowie, who is still undefeated in district play.

Turnovers and fouls allowed the Lady Jackrabbits to get back in the game and eventually come away with a 50-37 victory.

“We came out and did the little things and ran our offense well, said Boyd coach Erica Warner. “My girls played hard and I was very proud of them.”

The Lady Jackets were led in scoring by Paytin Bullard, who ended the night with 17 points. Bullard also knocked down three 3-pointers.

The loss dropped Boyd to 6-17 on the season and 2-6 in district play. The Lady Jackets traveled to Nocona Friday.
