MilesCC Women fall to Lake Region State College

(Devils Lake, ND) Miles Community College traveled to Devils Lake to play in the Sleep Inn Classic. MCC played against the host team Lake Region State College. The Lady Pioneers were coming off a split in the previous weekend and were looking to go out and get a pair of wins at LRSC. The Pioneers were coming into these two a bit short handed due to injuries, as they only suited up 8 women. The Lady P’s got behind early and stayed there through the entire first half, as they trailed 42-29 at half time. At the start of the second half the Pioneers had a burst of energy and played solid defense, and eventually cut the lead to 6 points. With the deficit at 6 MCC had a couple of good looks that didn’t fall from 3-pt range that could have tied the game. However, the deficit became too big to overcome and the LRSC Royals pulled away late in the 4th quarter as two of the Pioneer women fouled out. The Pioneers were in foul trouble from the very get go. The final score was 79-56.

The leading scorer for the Pioneers was Freshman Guard Tia Torio, as she put up her season high scoring night with 16 points. Tia shot 6-11 from inside 3-pt. range, and she also grabbed 6 rebounds on the night.

The only other Lady Pioneer who scored double-digits was Shelby Holmes, who had 11 points of her own on 4-of-7 shooting from the field, and Holmes also 8 rebounds and 1 block.

MCC will play against the Lake Region State Alumni team on Sunday at 10 am, as they look to leave Devils Lake with another split on the weekend.
