On Wednesday night the Lady Royals of Ecclesia hosted Arlington Baptist University. Despite a strong effort, victory would be out of reach.
The game started off competitively with Ecclesia trailing by just 9 after the first quarter. They played strong defense holding ABU to 20 in the first ten minutes. In the second quarter the defense struggled allowing 36 opposing points.
Turnovers would once again be a major factor in the loss as Ecclesia had 35. The game fell out of reach during the second half and the Lady Royals lost 93-54.
Junior Forward Saphire Thompson (Fayettville, AR/Greenland High School) went 5-5 from the field and led Ecclesia with 18 points and 5 rebounds. The Lady Royals take on Nebraska Christian tonight at home at The Jones Center. Tip off is at 5:00 p.m. Go Royals!
