The Bulldogs opened the game with a 13-0 run and never looked back. 

They extended the lead to 26-10 after one quarter and held Adrian to just two points in the second to take a 43-12 lead into the half.

The defense against clamped down on the Maples in the third, allowing just two more points as trhe lead grew to 58-14 after three and they cruised in the fourth.

Leila Wells scored a team-high 19 points to lead Chelsea.

Avery Lay added 13 points and Megan McCalla 12. Braiden Scheffler chipped in with eight points, Grace Ratliff seven, Ella Day five, Maggie McKale and Caroline Knight four each.
