A hot start was not enough for the Allen Community College Lady Devils on Saturday afternoon. Despite holding a 15-point advantage after the first quarter over Barton Community College, the Cougars roared back to win 87-82. 

“We got stagnant,” head coach Rachel Janzen said. “We saw that it was 23-8, got relaxed and stopped attacking. They chipped away, did what they were supposed to do, and made it a game in the second half.”

After Brandi Jordan nailed a 3-pointer from the corner, Barton called a timeout with 4:03 left in the first period as ACC began the game with a 19-2 run. The Lady Devils’ red-hot shooting in the first period helped them hold a 23-8 lead at the end of the first.
