Lady Eagles take Second in ACAA Championship Game

The Lady Eagles earned second place at this weekends ACAA Championship. Tight defense from both sides of the court kept both teams offenses in check tonight. The Lady Eagles ended the first quarter up 11-9. Several in and outs on the rim the Lady Eagles kept them from opening up a lead as they found themselves down by one as the teams headed into the locker room for half time. The Lady Eagles opened the game up in the third by outscoring the Lady Lions 9-3 to take a five-point lead. At the end of the third Abby Daddario put up a 3-pointer but it was waved off by the officials as the horn seemed to buzz before her shot got off. Heading into the fourth quarter with a 29-24 lead, the Lady Eagles looked to have the win in sight.  Several missed opportunities offensively early in the fourth came back to haunt the Lady Eagles. The Lady Eagles were holding onto a two point lead with 2:40 left in the fourth quarter when the Lady Lions put two in for a layup to tie the game, then grabbed a steal and drew a foul to pull ahead by three. A rarity for this season the Lady Eagles were held scoreless in the fourth and as the buzzer sounded the Lady Eagles ended the game down 32-29.

Torri Erdman scored 12 points and was a perfect 4-4 from the free throw line. Tiffany Billings played a tough defensive game and added nine points to the tally sheet. Abby Daddario finished with six points coming from two treys. The Lady Eagles finish the season by taking 1st place in the ACAA Eastern Division and 2nd place in the ACAA with an overall record of 21-2 and an ACAA record of 13-1.
