FULTON, MO -- The Webster Lady Gorloks put a halt to Westminster Lady Blue Jays' 5-0 win streak Tuesday evening when the Lady Blue Jays fell 65-69. The loss to the SLIAC number two seed, Webster, brought the Blue Jays' SLIAC record to 5-1 and their overall record to 6-9. The Blue Jays are still the number one seed in the SLIAC.

The Blue Jays took an early 8-2 run just three minutes into the game. The Gorloks pushed back, going on a 6-0 run, and tied the game at 8-8 with 15:12 left on the clock. The lead jumped back and forth, but with 12:13 left in the half, the Gorloks took control of the game. The Blue Jays were able to tie the game, but could not grab the lead back.

A traditional three point play by the Gorloks gave them their largest lead of the game, 10, but a jumper by Hannah Kloster started a 6-0 run to head into halftime down by 4, 32-36.

The Blue Jays came into the second half ready for the lead back. A short jumper by Danielle Williams from Kenna Cornelson tied the game with 16:29 on the clock. The Gorloks were able to pull the lead back, but not before the Blue Jays went on a 5-0 run to grab the lead with 13:05 left in the game. The Blue Jays lost the lead with 8:39 left of the clock, but kept the game within three points. They tied the game twice, but could not grasp the lead.

A Gorlok foul while Leigh Ann Lutz was shooting a three-pointer gave the Blue Jays the opportunity to bring the game within one point with 0:03 left. Lutz went 2-3 on her free throws, and the Gorloks made both free throws to clinch their win, breaking the Blue Jays' winning streak (65-69).

Lutz led the Blue Jays with 16 points, followed closely by Laci Luff. Luff had 15 points, going 6-10 from the field, while also grabbing 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Talisha Washington also grabbed 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Cornelson dished 8 assists, tying her single game career high.

The Blue Jays head straight back into action, heading to Greenville, Illinois Thursday at 6:00 p.m. to take on the number 6th seed in the SLIAC, Greenville College.
