Wings Bested by Sky 95-88

The Dallas Wings (7-14) lost to the Chicago Sky (12-10) 95-88 Friday night.

The Wings fell despite another incredible performance from the WNBA’s leading scorer, Arike Ogunbowale, who scored 38 points on a night when Dallas was down to just eight players due to injuries. Fellow Irishwoman Marina Mabrey continued to facilitate the Wings offence, scoring 11 and dishing out seven assists to go along with three steals and three rebounds.

Kayla Thornton provided valuable minutes of the bench, dropping 11 to log the eighth time she has scored in double-digits this season. Allowing her to surpass 1,000 points for her career. She also grabbed six rebounds and dished out three assists in her 26 minutes.

The Wings next take on the New York Liberty (2-18) Sunday, September 13 on the second day of the Liberty’s back to back at 11 a.m. CT on CBS Sports Network.
