Abbotsford (OnFocus) – For one half of Abbotsford’s nonconference matchup with Wittenberg-Birnamwood, it was a closely contested ballgame. W-B proved to be too much in the second half, however, and pulled away for a 60-40 win over the Falcons.

Catie Clement hit back to back three pointers early on, giving Abbotsford a 10-8 lead, and coupled with key baskets from Sydney Falteisek, the Falcons led 16-15 with six minutes remaining in the first half, their final lead of the game.

The Chargers then scored 7 unanswered points, and took just a 26-22 lead into the half.

After the break, the Chargers’ ball movement on offense proved to be too much for Abbotsford to halt, and the Chargers pulled away for the win.
