The Lady Blue Jays almost erased a 14-point deficit in the second half but watched their two-game winning streak end in a SLIAC home loss to the first-place Lady Tigers on Wednesday night.

The two teams combined to score just five points over the final 3 minutes, 35 seconds. After freshman forward Andrea Zalis lofted in a 3-pointer to bring Westminster College within 49-48 with 3:57 to play, Stephanie Russak answered with a trey at the 3:35 mark to account for Iowa Wesleyan College’s final points.

Sophomore guard Mackenzie Haddox then connected on a jumper with 3:03 remaining to pull the Lady Blue Jays back within two points, but that would be the last of the scoring. Westminster missed its last five shots, including a jumper by junior forward Danielle Williams with :01 left that would have either won the game or forced overtime.
