Women's Basketball Loses Despite Strong First Half

Tuesday night would feature a home contest for the Lady Royals at Next Level Achievements in Springdale, AR, as Ecclesia would host Calvary University.

The Royals came out ready to play and started strong with 19 first quarter points. The second quarter would be a battle as both teams scored 14. Ecclesia would go into the half with the lead for the first time this season with a score of 33-32.

The third quarter would be a different story as Calvary took control. Taking advantage of poor shot selection and a lack of strong defense, Calvary would outscore Ecclesia by 20 in the third to take command of the game.

The Lady Royals responded with a solid final quarter, but could not overcome the lead that Calvary had built. The Royals played competitively and showed signs that they are beginning to play to their ability. Sophomore Saphire Thompson (Fayetteville, AR) would lead Ecclesia with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
