Campbell upsets No. 3 state-ranked Dodd City

MERIT —   Campbell’s Lady Indians upset No. 3 state-ranked Dodd City 52-45 in a Class A Division II area basketball playoff on Friday night.

  The Lady Indians avenged two previous losses to Dodd City this season to advance to the regional quarterfinals to take on No. 1 state-ranked Saltillo on Tuesday night in Sulphur Springs. Saltillo won its area game, 55-23 over Prairie Valley.

  Haley Davidson pumped in 18 points to lead Campbell, including two free throws with two seconds remaining to seal the victory.

  Sara Taylor also fired in 16 points and Breanna Ashmore added 10 as the Lady Indians improved to 22-9 for the season.

  “I was super proud of my girls for stepping up in the first quarter when Haley Davidson picked up two fouls in the first minute and a half,” said Campbell coach Steve Guffey.

  Guffey said he was proud of the play of Becca Christensen and Haley Davidson.

  “Not necessarily because for scoring,” he said of Davidson, “but some of her assists.”

  Davidson’s dribbling, shooting and passing helped the Lady Indians outscore Dodd City 28-19 in the second half after trailing 26-24 at halftime.

  Campbell took the lead for good with about a minute and a half left in the third quarter on a bucket by Ashmore and got two more from Taylor and Davidson to go up 40-35.

  Campbell’s lead got as high as 11 points twice in the fourth quarter.

  Briann Hilliard led Dodd City and all scorers with 20 points, while Keeshia Thompson added 12 as the Lady Hornets finished at 24-6 for the season.
