Archer Women Drop Road Contest
January 23, 2013
|Freshman guard Kalah Martin scored more than 20 points
for the second straight game, but Three Rivers proved
too much for STLCC in an 85-65 loss Jan. 22.
With five minutes remaining Tuesday, the St. Louis Community College women’s basketball team appeared poised to possibly pull of its second straight dramatic road victory, trailing Three Rivers College by four.
But the Raiders then took control, as they outscored the Archers by 16 the rest of the way in an 85-65 win. With the loss, the Archers dropped to 11-6 on the season.
STLCC continued to receive strong production from freshman guard Kalah Martin (Kirkwood), who finished with a game-high 23 points, her second consecutive game with more than 20. Sophomore guard Kirstie Owen (Salem, Ill.) established a season best with 20 points.
The Archers enjoyed one of their most productive nights from the three-point arc, connecting on seven of their attempts. But the Archers’ second-half comeback attempt was not enough to overcome the Raiders, who improved to 15-5 on the season.
The Archers will look to rebound Saturday, when they resume Region XVI play against Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley. Saturday will also mark the team’s third consecutive road game.
If last year serves any indication as to how Saturday’s game will play out, the Archers will have a battle on their hands. After defeating Penn Valley by 25 in their initial meeting in St. Louis, STLCC sneaked by the Scouts 54-53 on the road. The Archers later defeated Penn Valley a third time to advance to the NJCAA Tournament.
