The Lady Eagles began the regular season Tuesday night with a 69-40 win over Crossroads College. Faith started the game slow as it took them a while to get things going in the first quarter, but took a 13-9 lead into the second quarter. In the second quarter sophomore point guard Holly Shepard hit four 3's to give the Lady Eagles some breathing room heading into halftime with a 32-13 lead.
The Lady Eagles started the second half much stronger than they did the first half. Scoring 20 points in the third quarter was enough to put the game out of reach for Crossroads. Faith was able to control the glass by out rebounding Crossroads 51-25 for the game. Laura Garwick (21pts and 12rebs) and Holly Shepard (15pts and 11rebs) both finished with double-doubles. Ashley Pearson chipped in 9 points and 9 rebounds as well.
