GALESBURG—The Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball team rallied from a double-digit deficit to take a late lead, but John Wood came back to hand the Chargers a 64-62 nonconference loss on Friday afternoon at John M. Lewis Gymnasium.
Sandburg (7-5) trailed by as much as 14 in the first half, and the Trail Blazers (7-8) led 58-48 before the Chargers put together an 11-0 run in 1 minute, 20 seconds for a 59-58 advantage with 2:00 left.
Sophomore guards Kaylee Moseley (Taylor Ridge, Ill./Rockridge) and Tesha Woolley (Princeton, Ill./Princeton) combined to hit three straight 3-pointers during the run, and Moseley’s layup after a steal by freshman forward Julia Isenhour (Clinton, Iowa/Prince of Peace) gave the Chargers their first lead of the game. It proved to be short-lived, however, as John Wood scored the next six before Moseley’s 3 with :00.4 left closed the scoring.
Moseley finished with four 3s and a career-high 24 points, including 20 in the second half. Sophomore forward Marysa Remick (Victoria, Ill./ROWVA) added 16 points for Sandburg.
The Blazers’ Shea O’Brien led scorers with 26 points, including six 3s.
“We just had a total lack of intensity at the start of the game,” Chargers coach Mike Bailey said. “John Wood’s a good team, and you can’t afford to go down 14 early and play catch-up the rest of the night.”
The Chargers play another nonconference game when they host Monmouth JV at 7 p.m. Monday.
