The Lady Wolverines limited Rogers Heritage to just one field goal over the final 3 minutes, 37 seconds to pull away and earn their second consecutive 6A-West Conference victory on Friday night at War Eagle Arena.
Maddie Lynge's short jumper pulled Heritage (4-13, 0-5) within 32-30, but Lainee Knight's 3-pointer with 8.1 seconds left was all the Lady War Eagles could muster after that.
Kelsey Wood's baseline drive and layup pushed West's lead to four and the Lady Wolverines (7-10, 3-2) then hit 5-of-8 free throws over the final 1:47 to pick up the win.
West coach Randy Richardson said his team's experience was key late.
"It's nice having five seniors on the floor most of the time," Richardson said. "That's the difference. Kelsey Wood, she made a couple of nice steals, a fast-break layup that was big for us. Shania (Wilson) just went battling for us inside.
