Bruins answer challenge to down Wilson
The Barlow girls put up 20 points in the fourth quarter to close out the win
PORTLAND The Barlow girls basketball team responded in crunch time Friday night to score a 55-50 win at Wilson.
The teams traded the lead several times early in the fourth quarter before the Bruins pulled away when Haylee Hutzler put up seven points in less than a minute capped when she buried an open 3 to push Barlow in front 46-39 with 3:32 left.
Wilson made in a two-point game on a long ball by Alexa Hinkley with 0:25 to play, but Barlow closed out the victory when Caitlyn Pemberton sank a pair of free throws in the final seconds.
The Bruins (2-1) are ranked No. 6 in the early-season RPI.
