The Union Lady Bulldogs got a game-high 17 points from Hallie Smith as they improved to 6-9 on the year with a 49-17 win over visiting Robinson, Ill.

The Lady Bulldogs led 17-2 after one quarter, 20-9 at the intermission and 32-11 after three quarters.

Their only glitch came in the second quarter when the Lady Maroons held them to just three points. After that it was back to business with one of the best offensive productions the Lady Bulldogs have had this year according to their coach.

"I thought we played really well for three quarters," Union coach Benji Boyd said. "In all but the second quarter we really played well. We handled the ball well and I was really pleased to get such balanced scoring, it was really nice to get four points or more from seven of our players, that's always a good thing."

Smith was just one part of an offensive attack that saw all eight players who took to the court score points for Union.

Hannah Sullivan finished with seven, Autumn Secrest, Cali Hale and Kolbi Reynolds all added five each. Korissa Jobe and Hannah Rennick added four each while Conner Kendall added two.

After the Lady Bulldog host Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference rival Shakamak on Monday night, they host North Vermillion on noon Saturday then close out the regular season with a 6:30 p.m. contest against Medora on Monday, Jan. 28.
