Second Straight Ranked Foe Finishes Leafs’ Weekend On Sour Note

O’Neal leads team, Archibeque posts season high in loss

ADRIAN, Mich. — Goshen College dropped a 65-43 women’s basketball decision to 18th-ranked Indiana University Northwest on Saturday afternoon in the consolation game of the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Classic.

Carley O’Neal led Goshen with nine points, one more than the Maple Leafs (1-9) got from Haley Archibeque, who put up a season-high eight in her first start of the season. Sydney Stein added seven points to go with a team-high six rebounds.

Chloe Salman scored a game-high 23 for the Redhawks (5-5), who converted at a 41 percent clip (26-for-64) from the floor and made eight of 22 three-point tries. Weslee Wilson added 14 while Alexis Blake contributed 12 rebounds and Gina Rubino had four assists.

IUN closed the first quarter by scoring nine of the last 12 points and stretched its lead out to 30-15 at halftime. Both teams scored 15 points in the final quarter as the Maple Leafs locked their opponents down, allowing two field goals in the last five minutes and closing on a 9-4 run.

Goshen was held to 13 baskets in the contest, although the Maple Leafs sank 14 free throws for their second-best mark of the season in that category. Six Maple Leafs took a trip to the line with Stein, Mariah Roe and Donnae Lipinski each leading the team with three successful foul shots. Goshen’s 12 fouls produced just nine trips to the line for IUN, which shot 56 percent in those chances.

Each team struggled to hold on to the basketball, combining for 35 turnovers: O’Neal’s three steals were a game high.

Goshen cycles back into Crossroads League play for its next three games, beginning with a visit to Indiana Wesleyan University on Wednesday. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at Luckey Arena in Marion.
