Lady Royals fall short in rivalry game

The Ecclesia College Lady Royals basketball team hosted their in-state rival Crowley's Ridge on Saturday for their final home contest of the season. Crowley's Ridge overwhelmed Ecclesia early and often with defensive pressure, forcing multile turnovers and putting this game out of reach early on their way to a 78-55 victory. 37 total turnovers was the story of the game with Crowley's Ridge racing to a 25-5 lead after one and a 52-20 halftime lead.

It may not have been our night but the girls showed some resolve in the second half, outscoring the Pioneers 35-26 in the second half.

Junior guard Haley Gresham (Crowley, TX/Southwest Assemblies of God) led the way for the Royals finishing with 23 points on 7 three pointers.

The Ecclesia women's basketball team has a quick turn around as they will leave for Texas Monday for a 5pm tip off against Arlington Baptist. Immediately following their matchup with the Patriots they will head to Kansas for a Tuesday matchup with Barclay College, tip off scheduled for 5:30 pm.
