HC Gets Road Win

FOR RELEASE
2005-01-08
The Foresters picked up a coveted MCC road win with their 59-42 victory over Goshen College. HC got off to a quick start scoring several baskets in transition to build an early lead over the Maple Leafs and then backed it up with some sticky defense to hold Goshen to just five field goals and 21% shooting in the first half. In the second half, the Foresters cooled off from the field, but continued to keep Goshen from establishing any offensive rhythm with some of their best defense of the year. HC pushed its 17-point halftime lead to as many as 26 midway through the second half to dash any Maple Leaf hopes of a comeback. HC's Betsey Bean was the top scorer in the game with 17 and added a team-high seven rebounds. Jessica Ramey chipped in 14 points, four steals and three assists, and Tiffany Malfait went 6-7 from the field for 13 points off the bench. Erin McDugle had 14 points to lead the Maple Leafs. With the win, the Foresters improve to 7-10 on the season and 2-4 in the MCC.
