By Gaylen Duskey SPORTS EDITOR
In the end it was just a matter of too much Julie Huffman.
The Wahama senior scored 32 points as the White Falcons put away Calhoun County Wednesday night, 62-47, in the Red Devils’ last home
game of the season.
Calhoun led early and had the White Falcons on their heels with a lead that stretch too as much as nine points.
But the Red Devils could not administer a killing blow.
Instead Wahama fought back from a first quarter deficit –16-13 – and grabbed the lead early in the second quarter – 18-17 – and slowly began the process of pulling ahead for good.
Wahama was on top 35-29 at the half setting up a Calhoun surge. The Red Devils pulled even on a couple of occasions and were down by
only four – 47-43 – at the end of the third quarter.
