Segarra was 9-for-17 from the field, hit two 3-pointers and converted all three of her free throws. Former Coosa star Mel McLean added 13 points, and Megan Walsh came off the bench to contribute 10 for the visiting Vikings.
Millsaps improved to 11-8 and 7-1 in the SAA. Berry dropped to 9-9 and 4-4.
The Majors held a 35-25 lead at halftime. The Lady Vikings closed the gap to 41-36 with 15:16 left after McLean made a three-pointer but got no closer.
“We are out-playing teams in the second half but are not aggressive enough in the first half, and you just can’t do that on the road,” said Berry head coach Stephanie Dunn. “The game was much closer than the score indicated, but we had to foul in the last few minutes. Give them credit for making their free throws.”
Both teams shot 42 percent from the field. The Majors, however, had 61 attempts to 50 for the Lady Vikings. The Majors held a 34-31 lead in rebounds. The Vikes committed 20 turnovers and the home team had just nine miscues.
