BROOKLYN -- 
The third time was not a charm for the Lutheran West Girl’s Basketball Team who played fellow Stripes Division rival, Brooklyn; their sectional game on Saturday at St. Joe’s ended no differently than the previous two meetings between the two teams. 
The Longhorns’ Achilles heel all season long has been turnovers. The fourth quarter of this game was no different. When faced with the pressure of having to score, West forces the ball and it normally ends up in the hands of the other team. At the beginning of the quarter, it looked as if they might overcome this as they scored within just sixteen seconds, once again taking the lead. But that would be their only basket in the fourth quarter until when they scored with 26.6 seconds left to play. By then, it was too late; the Hurricanes had taken the lead with 5:39 left and did not look back.
Other than the fourth quarter, the Longhorns were neck and neck with Brooklyn. After a dismal first quarter in which the Longhorns came out down by ten, LW went on 23-14 run over the span of the second and third quarters. In the second quarter they were able to shut down Brooklyn’s normally explosive offense and put on a show of their own, taking to a two point lead going into halftime. The third quarter saw little action on the offensive end as each team scored under ten points apiece, but the Longhorns were still able to keep up and entered the fourth only down by one. However, that was when they started to lose their composure and Brooklyn started to take advantage of their mental lapses.  
The Longhorns had one lone scorer in double digits, junior Lindsay Tomola who had 13. Fellow junior, Lindsey Thomas added six points. Lutheran West finished their season at .500 with a record of 11-11.
