December 3, 2022 — The Wyoming Cowgirls pulled away late for a 67-59 victory over Montana State in Laramie Friday night. The win was the Cowgirls’ second in a row and moved their season mark to 4-3.
Montana State jumped out to a 7-2 lead, but the Cowgirls fought back to trail by just two, 15-13, at the end of the first quarter. Wyoming would lead 32-29 at the half break and 50-44 heading into the final quarter.
The fourth began with a Wyoming layup, but once again, Montana State came right back, scoring the next four to cut the deficit down to four. However, Cowgirl Allyson Fertig would go to work getting a pair of lay-ins and forced a Bobcat timeout with 5:33 remaining and the Cowgirls holding a 56-48 lead. The Bobcats would cut the UW lead to 56-52 with just over two minutes to play.
Quinn Weidemann’s fourth 3-pointer put Wyoming up 59-52 with 1:23 to go and would close out the game by hitting free throws.
