Warren-Wilson College 72
Welch College 66
November 23, 2013. Warren-Wilson College came away from the Picirilli Activity Center with a 72-66 win over the host Lady Flames Saturday.
The game was a tale of two halves. The Flames owned the first half, but the Lady Owls took control in the second half to pull out the victory.
The Flames came out fired up in the first half, scoring 40 points while shooting 53% from the field, led by Ashton Johnson’s 15 points. They took a seven point lead into half-time, but the Owls were able to chip away at the WC lead and tie the game with 12:08 left in the game. WWC would not relinquish the lead again.
“I know we are young,” said a disappointed Flames’ coach Larry Bryan. “But, we have got to find a way to finish ball games.”
Johnson led the Flames in scoring with 20 points, pulled down seven rebounds and dished out six assists. Amy Pickett had a good day from the field, scoring 14 points, and Jessie Melvin had 12 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
The Lady Flames travel to Mid-Continent University Monday.
