Wisconsin Glo’s lights out shooting sparks fourth quarter rally as they defeat the St. Louis Surge
The Glo found themselves in unfamiliar territory Saturday night as they trailed the St. Louis Surge on the road 37-43 heading into half. This was the team’s third meeting of the season, in which the Glo had won the previous two matchups by a combined 39 points.
The Glo came into Saturday’s action with reduced numbers as they were missing Taylor Wurtz-Purifoy, Sam Logic, and Gaby Bronson.
Jolene Anderson would miss her first three-point attempt of the evening just two minutes into the action. That wouldn’t last long as it would end up being her only miss from that range of the game. Her next opportunity, just two minutes later, was a perfect swish and would be the first of her nine three-point makes.
Both Anderson and Julie Wojta carried the scoring load for the Glo as they combined for 59 of the teams 102 points in the win over the Surge.
Jessica Kelliher had another double-double for the Glo with 19 points and a team high 12 rebounds.
After three quarters of action the Glo had still been unable to gain a lead and trailed 64-63 heading into the final quarter.
An 8-0 run was how the Glo got things started in the fourth as a basket from the block by Kelliher, a three from Laken James, and Cori Coleman gave them a seven point lead and forced the Surge into a quick timeout to start the period.
Another Anderson three out of the timeout extended the lead to 10 in what was only a matter of minutes.
The Glo would carry the momentum throughout the remainder of the quarter as they secured the win 102-92 against the St. Louis Surge.
The Glo’s next home game is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th at 7 p.m, vs. the Detroit Queens as the teams will meet for the third of their four season matchups. Tickets and information are available at www.wiscoglo.com or the Oshkosh Arena box office.
