After a tough 0-2 start to the season, the women’s team has finally found the win column and will look to string some success together. Led in scoring by junior Ace Lawrence (Middletown, CT) with 15.6 points per game the ladies definitely can score points when they need to. Capitalizing on free throws would be helpful as well. Currently the Panthers are 63.4 from the free throw line, and their long ball has still not yet developed with a 31.3 three-point percentage.

The ladies hoped to end the streak when they traveled to Colby-Sawyer, and that’s just what they got.

Lawrence had her best shooting game of the season beyond the arc, connecting on 4-of-5 and hitting eight shots total, tallying 26 points. Kayla Wyland (Melrose, Mass) posted a double-double, scoring 19 and pulling down 14 rebounds on the night.

Plymouth stated off the game the way they have almost every game: back-and-forth, with a lead change almost every basket. After an early Colby-Sawyer run, Lawrence and teammate Taylor Perry (Simsbury, CT) connected on a pair of threepointers and closed the quarter out hanging on by two points.

Perry rattled in another shot from behind the arc to start the second, and after a strong performance by Wyland, PSU was able to post 11 unanswered points, taking a 34-25 lead into the half. The third quarter proved to be the breaking point in the third quarter.

Plymouth shot an even %50 in the third, with another great run started by Wyland. Her six points and seven rebounds were able to give Plymouth its biggest lead of the evening, and with the help of freshman guard Kailyn Aguiar (Acushnet, Mass.), PSU lead 56-38. Aguiar connected on her first three shots of the third in just seven minutes.

The Chargers tried to make a late break, but they only got as close as eight points. The combo of Perry, Lawrence and Wyland helped the ladies coast to a double-digit victory.

The ladies have a big four game home stand before Christmas break and look to take away a few wins heading into 2016. The first of the four was last night against Lyndon State, with scores being unavailable.
