Lady dolphins drop two this week

This week the Women’s Basketball team lost both of their games one on the road and one at home.  The dolphins fell to American International on the road Tuesday night with a score of 57-50.  Then on Saturday, Le Moyne hosted New Haven at Ted Grant court where they lost to the Chargers 80-72.

On the road, freshman forward, Lauren Price, led Le Moyne offense with 11 points. Sophomore forward, Emily Greer, registered 10 points.  Junior guard, Maddy McKnight also added five assists for the Le Moyne offense. The Dolphins and the Yellow Jackets traded control throughout the first half but A.I. concluded the first half with a 26-16 lead. Le Moyne ignited the second half, scoring eleven of the first twelve points.

The combination of Greer, Price and senior guard Torie Lee helped Le Moyne tie the game in the beginning of the second half. The Yellow Jackets then came back with ten straight points and from then on it was tough for Le Moyne to regain a lead.  Le Moyne outscored the Yellow Jackets 34-31 in the second half but still lost by a seven point margin.

Greer led the boards count with an impressive eight rebounds. This was the first loss for the Dolphins where they scored at least 50 points. Le Moyne moved to 2-3 for the season and 1-2 in the NE-10 conference.

On Saturday, Le Moyne hosted New Haven in a close conference match-up. Le Moyne was led by freshman Maggie Brown, who scored a career high 22 points. Brown also registered a team high on the boards, grabbing seven rebounds. Le Moyne had a lot of help off the bench. Sophomore guard Maddie Hahesy and freshman guard Lauren Salzbrenner tallied ten points a piece. Hahesy contributed six rebounds and Salzbrenner totaled three assists as well. The lead transferred back and forth between teams. Junior Maddy McKnight scored a few important baskets to keep Le Moyne in close distance. New Haven was on fire and finished the first half with a 22 point lead. The second half was better for Le Moyne. They had an 18 point scoring streak and outscored the Chargers 40 to 26. That wouldn’t be enough to send New Haven home with a loss. After getting the game within four with two minutes left in the game, the Dolphins fell by eight.

Although the ladies dropped two games they are looking to improve as the season goes on. McKnight said, “ We fought hard and I am proud of my team for that. We are working hard and I think if we can focus up on the little things then the outcome will go our way.” Le Moyne now moves to 2-4 for the season and 1-3 in the conference. The Lady Dolphins return to the court this Saturday at home against Adelphi at 1:00.
