The first half started off with a 3-pointer from the Hawks, but the Lady Warriors came back with one of their own from Gabbi Wallace ‘22.

“Our defense was okay, but we could have done better on the rebounding,” Dinah Bray ‘21 said. The game was a little chippy and people were getting frustrated which played into our loss. Overall our execution was better than it had been in the past.”

The second half began with numerous shots and free throws from the Hawks, leaving the Lady Warriors behind. Despite the Hawks’ 13-point lead, the Warriors came back with a 2-pointer from Wallace, followed by another from Olofson. Two free throws and a 2-pointer from Goolsbey enabled the Warriors to gradually close the lead. The Hawks returned fire with a 2-pointer, but that was countered with two free throws from Olofson. However, even after pushing through the Hawks’ defense for two 2-pointers from Goolsbey and Olofson, the Warriors still could not pull ahead of the Hawks. A last free throw made by Goolsbey concluded the game with a final score of 37-27 in the Hawks’ favor.

The Lady Warriors will take on the Vista Ridge Rangers on Friday, Dec. 13.
