Late Surge Pushes Women's Basketball Past Coker

SALISBURY, N.C. - - A late surge by the Catawba Lady Indians pushed them past the visiting Coker Cobras in South Atlantic conference women’s basketball action Wednesday night in Goodman Gym. The Lady Indians defeated the Cobras 55-52, improving their record to 8-7 for the season and 6-2 in the conference. Coker falls to 6-8 overall and 3-5 in the SAC.

Catawba shot 31% from the field and 57% from the free throw line. Terri Rogers led the Lady Indians with 16 points and nine rebounds. Marshauna Butler added 10 points and six rebounds for Catawba. Coker shot 38% from the field and 61% from the free throw line. Janea Williams and Hayley Kropp each posted 11 points to lead the Cobras.

A slow start for Catawba gave Coker the early lead in the first quarter and the eight point edge to go into the second 10-minute period. The Lady Indians trailed by as many as 12 in the second before cutting the Cobra’s lead to just seven to go into the break.

Catawba continued trimming down Coker’s margin during the third quarter, taking only a four point deficit into the fourth. The Lady Indians tied the game at 45 all with 6:39 left to play and took over control at the 3:44 mark. Catawba’s largest lead of five came off a layup by Serena Brown. Coker trailed by three with 15 seconds remaining and missed three jump shots in the final seconds to give Catawba the 55-52 win.

The Lady Indians return to Goodman Gymnasium as they host Mars Hill at 2 pm.
