It’s hard to overcome 41 points at the charity stripe, but that is exactly what the Lady Warriors faced versus Ed-Co at home on Friday, as SW fell, 68-64. After tallying 36 fouls in the game, the Warriors trailed by as many as 15 in the fourth quarter.

The Vikings took advantage of the tight officiating to start the game with 10 of their 14 first-quarter points coming from the line. South Winn, on the other hand, had to rely on its shooting abilities to keep the game in check and trailed, 14-7.
