Cobras Rally Late to Defeat Erskine 64-57

DUE WEST, S.C. -- Autumn Lau had a game high 24-points, along with nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks to lead the Cobras to a 64-57 victory over the Flying Fleet of Ersking College on Saturday (Feb. 2) in a Conference Carolinas competition.  The win improves Coker to 12-8 on the year, and 8-6 in league play.

The competition proved to be evenly matched as both teams exchanged points in the early minutes of the game.  Neither team could separate larger than a margin of five, until Coker went on an 8-3 run to end the half and took a 32-24 lead into the locker room.

The Cobras were able to continue that run into the second half to stretch their lead to 11-points within the first two minutes.  The Flying Fleet however, went on an 11-0 run of their own to tie the game at 39 with just 10-minutes remaining in the competition.  Coker's offense countered and scored 25-points in the final 10-minutes to secure the win.

Amber Lau was second in scoring for the Cobras with 11-points.  Amber also had a team high four steals, five rebounds, and three assists.  Heidrun Kristmundsdottir tallied up eight points, and Priscilla Fenty was second in the rebound category with seven on the day.

Coker will return home on Wednesday (Feb.6) to face Barton College in a Conference Carolinas game.  The game will begin at 5:30 p.m.
