The Sweeny Lady Dogs overcame injuries to win both their games Saturday at the Boling Tournament.
The Lady Dogs were missing Asha Strauther and Skylar Bess, who were injured Thursday during the tournament’s first day, as well as Brandi Fields. Tierra Pinson started a game Saturday but was injured and sat out after that, leaving Sweeny with just a half-dozen players available.
“Our girls were extremely tired,” Sweeny coach Dwayne Stevens said. “We played back-to-back games, we were short on subs and, on top of that, our only sub fouled out, so we were playing with five players. I’m proud of our girls for having the heart to play so hard for so long in back-to-back games.”
Sweeny beat Tidehaven, 44-16, behind Anna Green’s 13 points and Ashley Dailey’s 12.
In a 57-53 overtime win against Danbury, Green again led Sweeny with 21 points, Dailey scored 13 and Madison Roman added 12.

Nataly Segler led Brazoswood with 11 points, with Twig Bolton getting 10 and Macy Leger and Taly Montejano six points each.
The Lady Bucs (2-7) return to the court Tuesday with a trip to Dickinson.
