4th Quarter Comeback Falls Short for Lady Royals

Friday night the Lady Royals took on Randall University at The Jones Center in Springdale, AR. Ecclesia came out ready to play and played strong in the first quarter.

Following the first ten minutes of play the Lady Royals trailed by only 6, as they would go into the second quarter behind 20-14. Senior Haley Gresham (Crowley, TX/Southwestern Assemblies of God University) led the EC with 4 in the first quarter. The second quarter is when Randall began pulling away. Ecclesia struggled to score in both the 2nd and 3rd quarters and would go into the final quarter trailing 56-35.

The fourth quarter is when the Lady Royals began to fight their way back into the game. Behind solid defense, excellent late game rebounding, and the scoring of Sophomore Saphire Thompson (Fayettville, AR) (9 in the 4th) and Freshman Alexis Hodges (Malvern, AR/Magnet Cove High School)(8 in the 4th) EC would bring the game to within 9 points with 3 minutes left. Unfortunately the comeback could not be completed as Randall would hold off Ecclesia to win 67-55.

Saphire Thompson would lead the Royals in scoring with 13. Ecclesia’s next home game will be on Tuesday November 13, at Next Level Achievements in Springdale, AR.
