Lady Cougars Host Northwood

(12/8/09) Clearwater, FL- The Lady Cougars faced their toughest opponent of the season last night in Northwood. CCC knew it was going to be a tough game coming into it. Northwood had 10 seniors, and the last four years NU has either tied or won their conference.

Clearwater came out with mostly freshman and led a good part of the first 10 minutes and were down only 5 at the break. The Lady Cougars played solid defense in the first half and NU shot only 30% from the field. In the second half the Seahawks heated up on offense shooting 44% from the field for the game and their experience in close games was quickly evident as they jumped from a 28-23 lead to 67-29 with 12 minutes left in the game. The Lady Cougars however, did not fold and closed the game on a run of their own outscoring the Seahawks 21-14 down the stretch to lose by a final score of 81-50. Katie Mullens and Amanda Ison both had 12 pts, Richelle Bucklin had 7, and Lauren Leabhart had 6.

The Lady Cougars face Warner University on Thursday in a rematch of an early season game won by the Royals.
