In a matchup tonight against the Wesleyan College Wolves, the Lady Eagles came out screaming. With a great outing from Sky Boyd off the bench, the Lady Eagles continued their home stand with their fifth win of the season.
Getting the scoring started, Wesleyan College went up 2-0, but a quick response by Kristin Mentzer in her second career start, got the scoring underway for the Lady Eagles. Trading baskets back and forth, the Wolves and Lady Eagles kept it close through the first four minutes, but the Lady Eagles turned the intensity up and went on a 13-2 run to end the quarter. With a hot start to the second, the Wolves responded with a 6-1 run, but with a few substitutions and a great first half off the bench from Sky Boyd the Lady Eagles went into half-time up 40-21.
Continuing a dominant first-half performance by the Lady Eagles, the scoring refused to slow down, and the Lady Eagles came out of the third quarter comfortably ahead 59-35. With a low-scoring fourth quarter from both teams, the Lady Eagles finished the game with a score of 68-42 in large part due to Sky Boyd‘s 14-point and 5-rebound outing off the bench to seal the win.
