Lady Lancers top Goshen for third straight win

GOSHEN, Ind. – Brooke Sugg keyed Grace’s women’s basketball team to its third straight victory, beating Goshen 77-65 on the road Wednesday.

Sugg scored a game-high 33 points, her third-straight game of at least 30 points. Sugg, the reigning Crossroads League Player of the Week, hit four 3-pointers and was 9-of-9 from the foul line for the Lady Lancers (8-5, 3-1 CL).

Grace’s pressure blitzed the Maple Leafs (6-6, 0-4 CL) from the opening tip. Kyannah Stull buried a 3-pointer to start the scoring, and Grace went on to score 14 straight points to start the game. Sugg had seven points during that spurt.

The Maple Leafs were stifled into six turnovers in the first quarter and did not score a point for the first 5:52 of the quarter. Sugg beat the buzzer with a shot for the final score of the quarter, and the Lady Lancers led 18-8 after one period.

Goshen rallied with a 10-0 run early in the second quarter to cut Grace’s lead to two. But the Lady Lancers countered with a 13-1 run of their own to re-establish a double-digit lead.

Grace held a 40-28 edge at halftime thanks to 17 points from Sugg and six from Stull.

Goshen refused to fade, however, and defensively held Grace to 14 points in the third quarter.

The Maple Leafs slowly whittled down Grace’s cushion, and Goshen trailed just 54-50 with nine minutes remaining in the contest.

But Grace reacted calmly, scoring seven straight points to eliminate Goshen’s immediate threat. Kaylie Warble scored three quick points to start Grace’s run.

The Lady Lancers managed to hold off Goshen for the rest of the fourth quarter, and Sugg hit four foul shots in the final minute for the final 12-point margin of victory.

Grace only committed 12 turnovers, including just four turnovers after halftime. Goshen, on the other hand, was forced into 22 turnovers.

For the game Grace struggled with its shooting touch by making 39 percent from the floor and 27 percent from beyond the arc. But the Lady Lancers got to the foul line 25 times and made 20 of their chances.

Stull had a balanced statline with 10 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. Kamryn Hostetler had 8 points, 6 assists and 2 steals, and Warble added seven points and eight boards.

Vironnica Drake tallied 6 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals and 2 assists, and Pam Miller produced eight points and two rebounds.

The Lady Lancers are on the road again on Saturday, playing at No. 24 Huntington at 1 p.m.
