BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA) -- At halftime, Churchill led Walter Johnson, 30-22. By the end of the third quarter, the Wildcats were down by just three points. Ultimately, it was the swish from three pointers and foul shots that led Walter Johnson to a 59-52 victory over the Bulldogs on Friday night.
"We shoot free throws every day. Our team goal is 80 percent. We talk about our percentage after every game and how we need to improve, so free throws made the difference tonight," said Wildcats head coach Lindsey Zegowitz.
Melanie Ackerman led Walter Johnson in scoring with 14 points, while Kristen Larrick finished the night with 13 points, eight of which she scored in the fourth quarter.
The Wildcats (10-3) will face off against Whitman next Friday while Churchill (9-3) will take on Bethesda-Chevy Chase.
