The TFC Lady Eagles traveled to NCAA Division III Covenant College on Thursday for an out of conference game. The Lady Scotts of Covenant jumped to an early lead, and were too much for the Lady Eagles, who fell 40 – 78.
After TFC’s Maddy Moody opening the game with a quick offensive rebound and put-back, Covenant College went on a 19 point scoring run that would span the opening 10 minutes of the game. TFC cut the deficit to 13 points with 8 minutes remaining in the half, but the Lady Scotts would respond to go up by as many as 23 points before halftime. Olivia Edmunson’s jumper with 11 seconds left in the half sent the Lady Eagles to the locker room down 16 -37. The second half was more of the same for the Lady Eagles. 23 turnovers and the allowance of 16 offensive rebounds doomed any comeback attempt TFC could muster. The Lady Eagles were out shot from the field 30% – 46% in the loss.
Individually, TFC was led by Edmunson’s 9 points on 4 – 5 shooting. Cassidy Lang and Maddy Moody added 8 and 6 points, respectively.
The Lady Eagles will host region opponent Clearwater Christian College Saturday at 1:00. Following the Lady Eagles game, TFC’s men’s team will also host Clearwater Christian College.
