The Seward County Lady Saints problems on the road continued Saturday night in Great Bend against the Barton Cougars in a crucial Jayhawk West Conference game between the team one game in front of them in the conference standings. Seward held the lead nearly all of the first half and the first 12 minutes of the second half but poorly timed turnovers would do them in as the game came to a close and a couple of big shots late by the Cougars would prove the difference as Barton came out on top 59-53 to send the Lady Saints to .500 in conference action.
Seward could never get their offense going in the loss as they finished the game with 24 turnovers while shooting just 31 percent overall in the game. Hannah Rotolo would be the only Lady Saint to reach double figures as she finished with 10 points in her return to Barton where she played her freshman season. 
Hanna Bognar would rack up nine blocks in the game for Seward to climb to No. 4 in the NJCAA rankings in that category. The Lady Saints fall to 15-9 overall on the year and 5-5 in Jayhawk West Conference play. 
The 5-5 mark places them fifth in the conference and a full two games out of reaching the coveted fourth spot needed to host a Region VI Playoff Game.
Their next test will come on the road Monday when they travel to Colby before wrapping up their three game road trip at Pratt on Wednesday.
