Archer Women Gain 12th Win after Routing Shawnee

December 17, 2014

Myia Bridges came off the bench to score a career-
high 20 points in STLCC's 99-25 win over Shawnee
Community College Dec. 16.

For the second time in as many games, the outcome was devoid of doubt soon after the opening tip for the St. Louis Community College’s women’s basketball team.

The Archers raced to a 30-point lead within the game’s first 10 minutes, en route to a 99-25 drubbing of Shawnee Community College Dec. 16.

The win was the third consecutive for the 12-2 Archers. Sophomore guard Deborah Holcomb scored a game-high 24 points, including 22 in the first half, before yielding all but two minutes of the second half to the Archer bench.

Freshman forward Myia Bridges contributed a career-high 20 points off the bench in the blowout win, and also grabbed 14 rebounds for her first career double-double. In all, four different Archers reached double figures in scoring for the third consecutive game.

Freshman forward Abby Holtkamp narrowly missed reaching double figures in scoring for the third straight contest, as she finished with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting.

The Archers were lethal from 3-point range, connecting on 10 of 21 attempts from beyond the arc. Sophomore guard Brandy Ward led the charge from the perimeter, draining four of her nine attempts from long range. Ward finished with 15 points in just 18 minutes on the floor.

“This is going to help our bench,” head coach Shelly Ethridge said, after having deployed reserves for roughly half of the game. “It’s going to be very important for us to have depth as we go down the stretch later in the season. There’s always something to take out of these games, and with us having a good contest tomorrow (against Jefferson College), we needed this.”

The Archers will travel to Jefferson today (Dec. 17) in search of a season sweep against the Vikings. In all, STLCC has won three consecutive games against Jefferson, with their last loss coming during the 2012-13 season.
