wnba ball cart

Stefanie Dolson made four 3-pointers and finished with 18 points and eight rebounds to help the Washington Mystics rally for a 92-84 home victory over the Dallas Wings on Sunday.

Emily Engstler and Karlie Samuelson scored 13 points apiece while Myisha Hines-Allen and Ariel Atkins chipped in 12 apiece for the Mystics (4-13), who trailed by as many as 10 and were down 51-46 at the half.

Atkins hit a 3-pointer with 6:08 to go in the third that gave Washington its first lead at 58-55 and the Mystics went on to win for the fourth time in their last five games after an 0-12 start.

Hines-Allen’s 3-pointer with 1:15 left in the third pushed the Mystics ahead 73-61.

Natasha Howard led Dallas with 26 points and Arike Ogunbowale added 23 for the Wings (3-13), who were outscored 29-14 in the third and dropped their 11th in a row. Reserve Monique Billings finished with eight points and 14 rebounds.

Dallas was looking to avenge Saturday’s 97-69 loss at Washington and seemed to be on its way after a strong first half.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Howard staked Dallas to an early 6-0 lead.

That was the start of a 16-point first quarter for Howard, who stretched the Dallas lead to 20-12 with 4:41 left on two free throws.

The Wings led by as many as nine at 32-23 after Ogunbowale drilled a 3-pointer with 1:42 to go and led 32-25 after the opening quarter.

Ogunbowale’s step-back 3-pointer over a defender at the 8:49 mark of the second gave Dallas a 37-28 advantage.

Two minutes later, she knocked down another shot from distance, connecting in the corner as the Wings took their first double-digit lead at 41-31.

Unfazed by the deficit, the Mystics battled back with consecutive 3-pointers by Dolson and Samuelson. Samuelson’s shot cut the Dallas lead to 41-37 and forced the Wings to burn a timeout with 4:39 left in the half.

Washington was within 43-42 after Engstler drilled a wide open 3-pointer with 3:03 remaining but Dallas went into halftime up by five.

The two teams combined for 14 3-pointers in the opening half, including eight by the Mystics.
