The Arkansas City High School girls basketball team had its best production of the season thus far, but a late collapse was costly in a 40-22 loss to Rose Hill in nonleague action in The Dawg Pound.

The Lady Bulldogs (0-8) had a season-high 10-0 first-half run and led 18-12 at halftime. But just when it looked as if they were headed for their first victory, the offense collapsed with just four points in the second half.

Rose Hill went on a 28-2 run in the second half to pull away.

Ellie Messenger had team-highs of 10 points, eight rebounds and four steals for the Lady Bulldogs, who were just 2-of-20 shooting from the floor in the second half. Amoni Evans chipped in four points and five boards.

Aspen Goetz led all scorers with 17 points for the Lady Rockets (4-4).
