KLAMATH FALLS -- The NCU Beacon women move to 13-3 in CCC play with late 4th quarter push, giving them a victory over the Lady Owls by a score of 74-55 on Danny Miles Court.

The game tipped off with the Beacons on fire, outscoring the home Lady Owls 22-10 in the period. NCU jumped out to an early lead, pushing the gap to double-digits with the score 17-7 in just 5:30 minutes. Tech had little response for the strong play early on.
Coming back on the floor in the second quarter, both teams battled toe-to-toe, as the two teams exchanged buckets at either end. The Lady Owls looked far more poised to hang with the Beacons, matching the away team’s 19-points in the period, but still down by 12-points at the halftime break with the score 41-29.

The second half brought out a new energy in the Lady Owls, as the home team held the visiting Beacons to just 9-points in the period, while adding 15-points of their own. The run by the Owls came late in the period, but ending on an 11-3 run, cut the lead to 6-points with the score at 50-44.

In the final 10:00 minutes of the game, the Lady Owls closed the gap to just 3-points early in the period, before the Beacons buckled down and took the game over. Having their most productive quarter, scoring 24-points, and limiting the home team to only 11-points, the game came to a close with NCU outscoring Oregon Tech 74-55.

On the night, the Beacons were led by Anamaria Virjoghe with 26-points and 12-rebounds, while Morgan McKinney put up 17-points and grabbed 9-rebounds.

The Lady Owls saw four players in double digits, with Bailey Nelson and Amanda Constant with 12-points each and 13-rebounds split between the pair. Megan Morris and Mikaela Shumaker both added 11-points and 5-rebounds apiece.

With the result on the night, both teams remain at 3rd and 4th place in the CCC standings, with NCU at 13-3 and Oregon Tech at 11-6 in conference play.

The Lady Owls will be back in action on Sunday afternoon, as they take on Corban University at 4:00pm at home on Danny Miles Court.
