Lady Cougars Thrilling Home Opener


(11/13/09) Clearwater, FL- The Lady Cougars opened up their 2009-2010 season at home against Piedmont Baptist Bible College.

Both teams battled back and forth in the first half, but Clearwater pulled away and ended the half with a score of 34-23. The Lady Cougars continued their dominance through most of the second half, building a 12 point lead with 6 minutes to go in the game. Piedmont came roaring back and pulled within 1. Piedmont took possession of the ball and shot a jumper from the top of the key that rattled around the rim and bounced out. Katie Jo Mullens put up a big game with a double-double, along with a heads up play on a loose ball in the final few seconds, and Justina Bechtel had a huge game with 26 points and 10 rebounds.

The Lady Cougars will be in action again Saturday, November 14, at home against Ave Maria.
