Gridley always has had an ex- cellent defense, and during the first 12 minutes of Tuesday night's con- test in Farmer's Hall, they needed it because the Bulldogs' offense was still in the locker room. Mike Sanford, unaccustomed to his role as a reserve, came off the bench to score second quarter points and Andy Rodgers poured in nine to break open a close game and Gridley went on to win it, 77-53. In the first quarter, the Bulldogs missed their first four shots, made three turnovers and refused to re- bound. Fortunately, Winters was just as bad. Gridley finally got untracked as Rodgers hit a 15 foot banker and center Mike Little began rebound- ing. Gridley was behind most of the first quarter, before taking a 10-8 lead with 53 seconds left on four straight free throws by Little. In the second quarter, Sanford began hitting from the right side and Rodgers took it tO the hoop, boosting Gridley's lead to 24-12. But it was not a pretty half for the Bulldogs offensively. Their passing was sporadic, and they weren't shooting well, except for Rodgers and Sanford. The Bulldogs could have easily been behind, but their matchup zone defense kept the Warriors far outside. Winters, a run and gun team, demonstrated no patience whatsoever, throwing up 30 footers with nobody underneath. Little's rebounding was one bright spot as was John Douglas, who came in at center in the second quarter, and grabbed eight re- bounds and scored eight points for the night. Gridley was also not used to the physical kind of game that Winters was playing, being pushed under- neath and bullied under the boards. It was in the second half that the real Bulldogs decided to take the court. The defense had been there, but it v)as now time for the offense to strut their stuff. Gridley came out smoking as forward Richard t3arp hit a 23 footer from the left baseline; Little popped in a short jumper, and Rodgers swished a 15 footer before Winters called timeout, but the game was all over by then. Bulldog coach Darcy Wingo praised the play of guard Ken Bird, who did not start. Bird scored only four points, but notched four assists and guided the Bulldogs' motion offense, Wingo said. The coach added that'Little and Harp did well under the boards, but also praised the work of Douglas, who scored eight points and grabbed eight rebounds in just seven minutes of playing time. Rodgers led all scorers with 23, followed by Sanford's 14 and Harp's 13. Gridley, after a slow start, domi- nated the boards, 51-22. Harp was the game's leading rebounder with 17, followed by Little with 10 and Douglas, 8. Winters also had an awful night shooting, connecting on just 20 of 73 field goal attempts for 27 per- cent. Gridley was 30 of 68 for 44 percent. Gridley, now 7-0 in league play and 15-2 overall, can clinch a tie for the championship with a win over Orland there tonight. Sutter is the only team left in the WSL with a shot at Gridley, with a 6-1 record in WSL action and 5-2 in BVL play. The Bulldogs beat Sutter in a previous meeting this year. Because of the Lincoln's Birth- day holiday, Gridley will be at Sut- ter Wednesday, instead of the nor- mally scheduled Tuesday night game. MIKE LITTLE JUMP SHOT.
