CENTREVILLE, MICHIGAN –The Ancilla College Lady Chargers battled hard in their game against the Glen Oaks Lady Vikings in Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Western Conference play, but turnovers proved to be costly. The Lady Chargers lost their final game of the season 55-50.
The Lady Chargers (2-23, 2-14 MCCAA West) had 21 turnovers in the game against weak pressure from the Lady Vikings.
Head coach Stephanie Beason said there were many mental mistakes made by her team and her girls shot too many shots from behind the 3-point arc. “We got away from the game plan a little bit and that really cost us. We shot way too many threes throughout the game instead of taking the higher percentage shots.”
The Lady Chargers kept the game close in the first half and tied it up late in that stanza, but the Lady Vikings sunk a pair of three pointers to close out the half and take the lead.
“There were numerous times where we got the score back to two points, but we just couldn’t get over that hump to tie it back up or take the lead,” mentioned Beason. “We’ve been playing with six people for most of this semester. I’m really proud of the girls that hung in there with me to finish out the season. Our record may not show it, but they have a lot to be proud of. That’s a ton of minutes per person in league play and I really think they gave it their all.”
The Chargers were led by Brittany Cook with 15 points and 10 rebounds followed by Katrina Vannoy with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Rebecca Bunkowfst added another 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Lady Chargers.
