The Hinds Bulldogs women’s basketball team fell to the Meridian Community College Lady Eagles Monday night at home in Utica.
The Lady Bulldogs gave the home crowd a cause to rally, however, as the score remained within one point all the way through halftime when Meridian led 29-28.
The Lady Bulldogs eventually took the lead early in the second half when Acacia Stewart hit a mid-range jumper to give the Bulldogs a 30-29 lead.
By the end of the third quarter, Meridian had pulled away with a 10 point lead (46-36).
In the fourth quarter, MCC outscored Hinds 16-12 to capture the 62-48 win.
The Lady Bulldogs now sit at 2-8 overall and 0-3 in the MACJC South.
They will be back in action Thursday, Jan. 16, as they travel to Poplarville to take on the Pearl River Community College Lady Wildcats.
