After leading Columbus by 11 points in the first quarter, the West Point Lady Wave watched its advantage vanish by halftime, and dropped a MHSAA non-district bout to the visiting Lady Falcons, 59-44, Saturday evening on the campus of West Point High School. The loss followed a narrow, 56-54 victory over the Aberdeen Lady Bulldogs Friday night at home.
“I want to put this on a mental lapse,” West Point Head Coach Dashmond Daniel said about the loss to Columbus. “They are so used to playing from behind, and they are never used to playing up. I relayed to them that they have to continue the same intensity throughout the game. They relaxed on me … they got confused on defense and offense.”
The Lady Falcons used a 16-0 run in the first four minutes of the second quarter as Columbus outpaced West Point before halftime (27-10) for a six-point lead, 30-24. The Falcons never let West Point get any closer than eight points in the final 16 minutes, cruising to an easy non-district win.
