Just one game to report on from the weekend, and unfortunately it was our first home loss. Concordia handed us a 64-56 defeat, marking our lowest point production to-date. The fast pace was much to our liking in the first half and although we trailed 19-17 after one quarter, we began to wear Concordia down in the second, outscoring them 15-9 to go into half time with a 4 point lead.
Concordia, however, managed to grind the game down to a much slower pace in the second half. The third quarter, the lowest point output of the season, saw us outscored 13-5. The fourth quarter produced much more scoring (with a correspondingly high number of turnovers on our behalf) leaving us down another 4 points (23-19) and the 64-56 defeat.
Hanna Koposhynska had another solid game with 13 points and 9 boards. Paige Robinson was the only other Q’s player with double digits with 11 points, but Christine Wallace did have 9 boards to go along with her 8 points.
