The Dugway girls (7-8, 0-1) started off with a 7-5 record, but now they have lost three games in a row dating back to Dec. 28. The most recent loss was a 41-37 region loss to Tintic (3-12, 1-0) on Tuesday. Nadaja Bullock poured in 21 points for the Lady Mustangs in the losing effort, and Katreena Johnson aided her with 10 points. Allie Wall scored 5 points, and Cynthia Kimler hit a free throw for her only point. The difference came in the fourth quarter with Dugway leading Tintic 27-23. The Lady Mustangs allowed Tintic to outscore them 18-10 in the final period to end up losing the game. Dugway shot 41 percent from the free-throw line on 7-of-17 attempts. Five games still remain in the season for the Lady Mustangs to get back to their winning ways and capture the region title. The next game is on Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. against the Wendover Wildcats.
