Ecclesia Women’s Basketball began their 2018-2019 season on the road in Texas on Saturday October 27, 2018. Traveling to Keene, TX to get their season underway, the Lady Royals faced off against Southwestern Adventist University.
The Lady Royals jumped out to a quick start following the tip-off shooting their way to an early 17-7 lead. Southwestern Adventist then took advantage of three quick fast break opportunities to close the gap before going into the half with a 17-13 Royals lead.
Despite the quick lead early in the first half, Ecclesia’s offense struggled as shots simply weren’t falling. Between the struggling offense and foul trouble Ecclesia just could not stay in the game. Harmony Van Campen and Tierra Holliman both fouled out in the second half. Ecclesia suffered their first defeat by a score of 47-30. Holliman lead the Lady Royals with 12 points.
