Ladies came back from 13-point deficit to win in OT

Turner had 8 blocks,
8 boards and 15 pts
Cypress, CA - On a night when things appeared to be bad for the Lady Chargers, good things happened when they refused to play dead. Fullerton (9-7, 0-1) led 25-23 at the intermission and pounded an 18-6 run to build a significant lead 4329 at the 12:17 mark. After a time-out, the Chargers (12-7, 2-0) responded with a 8-0 run of their own to worry the Hornets. However Fullerton continued to hold on to the lead deep in the game. With 1:48 to go, the Hornets led 53-49 after Irma Urzua got fouled on a 3-pointer and converted a 4-point play. Sam Soria (17 points) knocked down the free throws to lock the game at 55-55 with 0:30 but Fullerton was called with an illegal screen. The Chargers still had a final chance to win the game in regulation, but Jeana Magana missed a 3-point attempt. Sloan Turner came up big defensively with 8 blocks and 8 boards. Turner also added 15 points for the Chargers.

In the overtime period, the Chargers build a 4-point lead and maintain it toward the victory. At 2-0, Cypress ties in 1st place in the conference with Irvine Valley.
