Geoducks drought ends with a win
January 6, 2007
Olympia, WA - Junior Molly Clark led Evergreen with a season's high of 16 points to spur the women's basketball team to their first win in 9 games. The Geoducks defeated Concordia University 62-58.
Five Evergreen players scored in the double digits and three of those players had season high point totals. Clark contributed 4 three point shots to her total, tying the season's high with Jennifer Solberg.
Coaches Monica and Mychael Heuer sent the entire bench into the game. Jenny Olson, a key player for the team, went to the floor hard midway in the first half and sat out the remainder of the first period. With 8 minutes left in the game Olson fouled out after what could be viewed as a questionable call by the official. "The way things were going, we thought we were going to be playing with four players in the second half." said associate coach Mychael Heuer following the game.
The Geoducks controlled the scoreboard the second half, but the Cavaliers never trailed far behind and tied the game with just under five minutes left. Concordia was led in scoring by Lyndsee Landon with 14 points. Her teammates Joyce Oniah and Maryam Razavi each totaled 13.
The win moves Evergreen from last place to eigth place in the Cascade Conference and improves their record to 3-13 overall and 2-6 in the conference.
Evergreen is away this coming weekend when they travel to Seattle to play Northwest University, a team that is ranked seventh in the conference.
