Briana Hale’s third three pointer of the game, this one at the one-minute mark of the fourth quarter, helped staunch an LSU-Eunice rally and ice an 85-75 Angelina College win Monday night at Shands Gymnasium.

With the Lady Bengals having cut the AC lead to six points, Hale stepped back on the wing and drained a long trey; moments later, she and Briana Caro added the game-sealing free throws.

Those late points helped the Lady ‘Runners overcome a 30-point effort from Lady Bengal Katie Lemieux and a 19-point night from Becca Brooks.

AC’s LaNeique Nealey notched yet another double-double, leading the Lady ‘Runners with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Caro also hit a trio of three pointers to finish with 13 points, and Hale and Caitlyn Lambert added 10 points each.

The Lady Roadrunners (4-2) will host Southern University-Shreveport at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Shands Gymnasium.
