BOONE - The Iowa Central women have found their rhythm late in the season, adding a highlight win to the resume here Wednesday night.

Autumn Dykstra scored 16 points with Isabell West and Carley West adding 15 each as the Tritons topped No. 12 Des Moines Area, 69-63.

Taylor McKinney and Jordan Engbrecht each added eight with Nevaeh Galloway scoring five and Nevaeh Moeschter two.

Dykstra had six in the fourth quarter, knocking down a pair of 3-pointers. Isabell West also accounted for six in the quarter with Carley West scoring 10 in the second half.

"We did a better job of finishing possessions this time around on defense," Iowa Central head coach Brian Ortmeier said. "We had a balanced attack on offense. All around it was a great team effort to get the win on the road."

Iowa Central knocked down 10 three-pointers as a team.

The Tritons close out the regular season on Saturday inside Hodges Fieldhouse vs. No. 2 Kirkwood.
