The Lady Warriors enjoyed their only lead of the night with 30 seconds left on a breakaway layup by Abby Carrell, and the girls remain hopeful for a playoff spot. Friday night’s win brings the Lady Warriors to a 2-2 district record.
Leading scores were Allie Tillerson and Sadie Fontenot, and the team forced 15 turnovers and secured 27 rebounds in their best defensive effort of the season.
The Warriors, unfortunately, despite a good fight, came away with a loss against the Bobcats. The Bobcats held the visiting Warriors to 48 points, with the Bobcats taking the 76-48 victory.
