Pioneer Women Grasp Win from Patten College
by Michelle Konn
The Pacific Union College Lady Pioneer basketball team won 64-59 against Patten College on Saturday night, Jan. 18, at PUC's Pacific Auditorium.
The Pioneers trailed most of the game, and were down 26-29 at half time.
Pioneer captain Heather Isaacs said one of the team's goals was to get Patten's main players in foul trouble. Their goal worked, and two Patten starters fouled out in the second half. The Pioneers seized the opportunity and won the game 64-59.
"We got fired up at the end and pulled through," said freshman guard Julie Moyer. "What really helped us was our determination."
Isaacs said the team had a strong fundamental game. "It was a good win," she said. "We got more comfortable with our offense, and we had a balanced outside and inside game."
The Pioneers were led by Isaacs with 20 points. PUC freshman center Toakase Mo'ungaafi also had a strong game with 15 points and a team-high nine rebounds. The Pioneers have an overall record of 2-3.
