MOBERLY, Missouri—The Faith Eagles women's basketball team was on the wrong end of a hot shooting night by Central Christian College of the Bible Friday night as they fell on the road, 91-62.
Central Christian buried 12 three-pointers and had five players in double figures as they exacted revenge on the Eagles from a loss in Ankeny earlier this season.
Most of the damage was done in the first half by Central Christian as they drilled five three-pointers in the first quarter, and two more in the second quarter to build a 52-22 halftime lead.
Faith outplayed Central Christian in the second half, outscoring the Saints 40-39. Lyndi Shepard led the Eagles with 21 points on seven three-point baskets.
The Eagles hope to build off the second half momentum against Central Christian as they continue their road trip on Monday night in Lincoln, Nebraska, against Union College.
