LONG BEACH: Last night the Lady Wolves traveled to Lynwood HS in Long Beach in the second round of the state playoffs.
Lynwood HS was a State Tournament Open team and ranked 3rd overall in State (Division 1).
The Lady Wolves established an early lead but got into foul trouble late in the second quarter. Starters Nyah Moran and Heaven Johnson both picked up their 3rd foul and sat for most of the 2nd quarter. King struggled to maintain their lead late in the 2nd quarter, but managed to go into halftime with a 10 point lead.
The second half, the Lady Wolves used a 2-3 defense to stay out of foul trouble and force Lynwood into long contested shots.
Lynwood made a run late in the 4th quarter, cutting King’s lead to 3pts, but Nyah Moran and Olivia Moran hit 2 late three pointers to secure the victory for the Lady Wolves.
