Both teams scored 13 points in the second half. The JV Lady Chargers had a five-point lead when Jade Tullos stole the ball and went all the way for the layup to close out the game with a 26-19 win in the final seconds. 

The Lady Chargers will visit West Point on Friday, February 1, and will visit Windsor on Monday, February 4, in their final two games of the regular season. JV games begin at 5:30 p.m. and varsity games follow at 7 p.m.
