MOBILE, Ala. – After exactly one month away from the court, Brewton-Parker Women’s Basketball returned to play against SSAC foe Mobile (Ala.) on Thursday night.

The Lady Barons (8-5, 2-3 SSAC) fell to the Rams (9-3, 3-1) 69-64 as Mobile surged late in the fourth quarter to surpass Brewton-Parker.

“We made some immature plays tonight and those cost us late,” Coach Steve Edwards said. “We controlled the score for the entire game until the final three minutes.”

“Mobile out-worked us and killed us on the board,” Edwards added. “We have to be better in the final minutes if we want to be able to win the close games against good opponents.”

How It Happened

Brewton-Parker opened the game with a bucket from Madison Evans with Mobile quickly responding to level. Both teams traded scoring trips down the floor with the Lady Barons breaking the 4-4 tie to lead by two with just over seven minutes to play in the first quarter.

After scores from Na’Kayia Greene and Mayya Hopkins, the Lady Barons gathered a five-point lead with roughly five minutes remaining. Brewton-Parker closed out the rest of the quarter outscoring Mobile 7-6. BPC led 18-12 after the opening 10 minutes of play.

The Rams quickly pulled the deficit down to two points after a 4-0 run in the opening two minutes of the second period. Angel McRae scored with 7:53 on the clock to push the Lady Barons back to a four-point lead but Mobile answered with a bucket nearly two minutes later to move the deficit back to two.

Free throws from Sy-Marieona Williams and a jumper from Alexia Galloway advanced the BPC lead to six with 4:45 left to play in the half. Shortly after the Rams gathered back-to-back buckets to pull within two yet again.
