Cold Shooting Lady Eagles Lose At Colorado Mesa

By Zach Carattini, CSC Sports Information BOX SCORE

The Chadron State College women’s basketball team (3-6, 2-2 RMAC) was defeated 76-52 on the road Saturday night by Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference rival Colorado Mesa (8-1, 3-1 RMAC). 

The team shot cold in Grand Junction, scoring only 10 or fewer points in each of the first three quarters, while the Mavericks outpaced the Eagles in most statistical categories.  

The Eagles struggled to get anything going to start the game while the Mavericks’ offense exploded, scoring 47 first-half points while only allowing 10 points in the first quarter and 9 points in the second. The lone first-half three-pointer was made by Emily Achter on a pass from Olyvia Pacheco

The third quarter resembled much of the first two quarters, where the Eagles were limited to 10 points compared to the Mavericks’ 20. By the end of the third quarter, Mesa had outrebounded Chadron State 39 to 22. The score was 67-29. 

The fourth quarter was a different story. The Eagles’ offense finally began to click and exploded for 23 points while holding Mesa to only nine. During the quarter, the team shot 56.3% on field goals (9-16), 20% on three-pointers (1-5), and 80% on free throws (4-5). Samiyah Worrell had a fastbreak three-pointer and Jori Peters accounted for seven of the team’s 23 points.  

The Eagles were able to cut the Mavericks’ lead to 24 after the impressive final quarter of the game, which resulted in a 76-52 win for Colorado Mesa. 

Due to the Fall Commencement Ceremony scheduled for Friday the 17th, Chadron State will return to the Chicoine Center on Saturday and Sunday when they take on UCCS (3-6, 1-2 RMAC) and New Mexico Highlands (3-6, 0-3 RMAC).
