Women Fall to Hot Shooting Concord

BUCKHANNON -- West Virginia Wesleyan's women lost their second consecutive Mountain East Conference game Saturday afternoon, losing 88-68 to visiting Concord. Lefthander Madison May led the Mountain Lions with 30 points.

Wesleyan opened the game with a 4-0 lead, but Concord scored the next 20 points, and led the rest of the game. Coach Vicky Bullett's squad cut the margin to eight in the second quarter, when Abi Gabauer hit a jumper at the 5:51 mark, cutting the deficit to 30-22. Concord responded with a 17-5 run to close the half, staking a 47-27 halftime lead.

May was complemented by three teammates with 15 points each; Riley Fitzwater, Danielle Catron, and Lindsey Overbey.

Wesleyan was led in scoring by Mari Stewart with 15 points. The other three double figure scorers all came of the Bobcat bench; Gabauer and Katie Demi with 11 each, and Kiara Rodriguez with 10. Stewart also led with a team high nine rebounds, with Tara Goldman contributing a team high seven assists. Wesleyan took care of the ball, only committing nine turnovers, but was hampered by a 30.9% day from the field (25-of-81). 

Wesleyan falls to 4-4 overall with the loss, and 3-3 in the MEC. Concord improves to 4-5 overall and 2-4 in the league.

The Bobcats return action next Thursday in an out of confefence game, traveling to Seton Hill for a 5:30 tip off.
