With 4:14 left to play, Katie Anderson hit a three pointer to put Lewis & Clark up 71-68 over Evergreen at the CRC Gymnasium.

The Geoducks shot 52.4% from the field and had five players score in double digits including Kiemba Pearson’s 17 points off of the bench.
Sadee Jones and Jessica Denmon scored 15 and 14 points respectively and Brittany Gray added 13 with eight rebounds. Sammi Clark went scoreless in the first half but chipped in 11 points in the final 20 minutes to go along with six assists.

Saint Martin’s gave up just 30 points tonight, the least amount of points they have allowed since they jumped to NCAA Divison II, to waltz to a 68-30 win over Northwest University at Marcus Pavilion. The Eagles committed 32 personal fouls and the Saints made 24 of 37 free throws while Northwest shot just four free throws all evening.
The Saints hit eight three pointers, three each from Angela Gelhar and Jordyn Richardson, who scored 14 and 11 points respectively. Ciara Pedroni and Chelsea Haskey tallied 11 points each and Liz Mills added 10.
Northwest kept it close in the early going and led 10-9 with just eight minutes gone but were held scoreless over the next five minutes and the Saints went on a 27-5 run over a 12 minute span to close out the first half.
Just like Evergreen, Saint Martin’s has won three straight games and is 3-1 this season.
