Early Lady Commander lead vanishes as Westmoreland pulls ahead late
WESTMORELAND — Westmoreland's girls overcame an early Friendship Christian lead and wore the Lady Commanders out in the fourth quarter Friday to prevail 44-29.
The Lady Commanders jumped to a 15-7 first-quarter lead before the Lady Eagles soared to a 22-21 halftime lead and a 28-27 edge through three as they won the meeting of undefeated District 8-A teams to improve to 6-0 in the league.
Friendship committed 10 fourth-quarter turnovers and scored just two points as the Lady Commanders fell to 7-7 for the season and 4-1 in the district.
"Until then we were ahead in rebounds," Lady Commander coach Deanna Teeter said. "We had less turnovers than them. We played extremely well for three quarters and we just lost it."
Lindsey Jones tossed in 22 points to pace Westmoreland.
Katy Vaughan and Carly Warmath notched nine points apiece for Friendship while Lindsey Farmer finished with four, Sara Hay a three-pointer and Gabbie Lowe and Jessi Couch two each.
