by Chris Johnstone
The second-ranked Concordia women’s basketball team continued conference play and won 95-38 against the Midland Warriors inside Walz Arena on Jan. 11.
Freshman forward Philomena Lammers once again led the Bulldog pack with 21 points and 11 rebounds in just 19 minutes.
The Bulldogs are riding a 18-game winning streak, which dates back to their first game of the season, a loss from first-ranked Marian University on Oct. 28, 2016. The Midland Warriors now have a 11-7 overall record and are 4-6 in the GPAC.
With the halftime score of just 30-19 in favor of the Bulldogs, the ladies ramped up their defensive pressure and offensive firepower by scoring 65 of their 95 points in the second half.
Warriors guard Megan Kucks led the way for Midland, but it was not enough as the Bulldogs forced the Warriors to shoot just 21 percent from the field and 16 percent from the 3-point line.
The squad also forced Midland to turn the ball over 27 times in comparison to the Bulldogs’ 14.
Freshman forward Maggie Goltz was another key contributor for the Bulldogs offensively and defensively, with eight rebounds, seven points, two assists and three steals.
The Bulldogs continue conference play as they travel to Mitchell, South Dakota, to take on the Dakota Wesleyan Tigers on Sunday, Jan. 15 inside the world’s only corn palace. Tip-off is at 2 p.m.
