The War Hill Christian Academy Lady Warriors could not finish a fourth-quarter comeback against the Horizon Christian Academy Lady Warriors on Thursday, Jan. 21.
After being down by 11 points at the start of the fourth quarter, the Lady Warriors went on an 11-2 run, narrowing Horizon’s lead to just two points with 5:49 left in the game. However, the run came too-little too-late and the Lady Warriors could not get a basket for the next four minutes. Horizon took control and won the game 42-33.
Karyss Hamby was key in the Lady Warriors’ late run, scoring twice and assisting on two other scores. She led the offense with eight points scored in the game.
The Lady Warriors get a rematch against Horizon in their next game on Monday, Jan. 25 at Horizon’s campus in Cumming. War Hill and Horizon are not in the same region, but still play each other twice this season. The game starts at 6 p.m.
