Shooting Drought Sinks Lady Chargers
Harrison, AR – Ancilla College didn’t score for about eight minutes covering the second and third quarters and lost to Union County 61-47 Friday afternoon to close their season 26-7. The Lady Charger’s led 14-12 after the first quarter, but managed just nine points in the second frame. They fell behind by 20 points in the third quarter before getting to within 10 early in the fourth quarter.
The game was sloppy on both sides of the court as Ancilla had 25 turnovers and the Owls (27-6) had 29. Where shots went in yesterday, today they rolled off the rim.
“I’m very proud of what these women have been able to accomplish this year,” said Head Coach Tom Robbins. “They have been a hard working group who have fulfilled their potential with all sorts of accomplishments. They have been a pleasure to coach.”
Freshman LaRae Roscoe led the Lady Chargers with 17 points and 11 rebounds. She was not able to get to the rim as she often does as the tall Owl lineup clogged the lane all day. Brynda Krueger closed out her Ancilla career with 10 points and four steals. Sophomore Donshae Daniels had eight rebounds.
This has been the most successful season for the women’s basketball team. They have posted the most wins ever, won their first regional and were one of the last 10 teams playing at the Division II level in the country.
