Warrior defense shuts down Cal Maritime
VALLEJO, Calif. – Aided by a strong defensive effort which allowed just 12 points in the second half, the Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball cruised to a 68-37 win over California Maritime Academy on Saturday night.
LCSC, which now stands at 4-0, enjoyed a 51 percent night from the field but the difference in the game clearly came on the defensive end of the floor as the Warriors came away with 13 steals and forced Cal Maritime into 25 turnovers.
The Warriors had four players score in double-digits. Jasmine Stohr, who became the 12th player in Warrior history to have 1,000 career points at LC on Friday night, had 12 points and three steals. Lauren Daling and Kenna Reiter each had 11 points to go with four and two steals, respectively. Kirsi Voshell had a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Cal Maritime, an NAIA Division II school, was led by Christina Dixon and Joyce Koloa who had 15 points apiece.
The Keelhaulers attempted to get back into the game by attacking from outside, but ended up making just 3-of-18 shots from 3-point territory. They shot 24.6 percent from the field overall.
Up next on LCSC’s slate is the Twin Rivers Physical Therapy Classic on Nov. 19-20. The two-day round-robin tournament will pit the Warriors, which were ranked No. 11 in the NAIA preseason poll, against No. 13-ranked Biola University on Nov. 19, and then against California Baptist University on Nov. 20.
