The Riverhawks handled the NJCAA DIII Region XX Owls of Prince George's Community College for a 63-40 win this past Friday evening (1/18). Hosted by the Owls, the match-up was held at the Prince George's Community College campus in Largo, MD.
After a two-game losing streak against two Region/Conference powerhouse teams, the Riverhawks were eager to stop the pattern. Claiming the lead early, the Riverhawks would outscore the Owls, 20-13, after the opening quarter and continue to hold that control throughout. Karley Haensler (Glen Burnie, MD/Glen Burnie), Hannah Lieb (Annapolis, MD), and Sarah Healy (Davidsonville, MD/South River) would each post 6 points in the first quarter and finish with 8, 7, and 11 (respectively) after a slower second quarter but maintaining the lead (31-19) at the half.
The Riverhawks would return with a more dominating performance in the third quarter, outscoring the Owls 24-11. Although slowing down and posting just 8 points against Prince George's 10 of the fourth quarter, AACC would still earn the victory 63-40.
Heansler would finish with 21 points on the night while Healy picked up her 7th double-double of the season with 15 points and 17 rebounds. Lieb recorded her first double-double of the season, scoring 11 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.
The Riverhawks will host the NJCAA DII Region XX Seahawks of Cecil College for their next contest. Right inside the Jenkins Gymnasium of the Anne Arundel Community College campus in Arnold, MD, tip-off is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Monday January 21st.
