Dismal shooting hampered the Chadron State women’s basketball team during its first two conference games on the road last weekend.

The Eagles shot less than 33 percent from the field in both contests, were just five of 27 from 3-point range and scored only 103 points in the two tilts.

The second quarter pretty well told the story in the first game. Colorado-Colorado Springs led by only 20-19 after one period, but was ahead 36-26 at halftime. The Eagles were just two of 11 from the field in the second stanza and trailed by at least five points throughout the second half.

The final score was 71-58.

“We were sluggish and could never get going,” CSC coach Janet Raymer said.

The Eagles shot just 32.7 percent (17-52) from the field and were only 2 of 18 from behind the arc. The Mountain Lions hit exactly 40 percent (24-60) and made eight of 23 treys.

Three Eagles scored in double digits with Jessica Lovitt’s 12 points leading the way. Kalli Fedderson scored 11 points and Jessica Harvey 10.

Shanah Leaf, a 5-10 senior, led the Lions with 18 points. The win was Colorado Springs’ first of the season after dropping its first seven games.

On Saturday night in Denver, Chadron State took the game’s largest lead, 38-31, early in the fourth period, but failed to score during the next six minutes and lost 56-45 to Metro State.

The Eagles, who had scored at least 57 points in each of their previous eight games, missed seven shots and had three turnovers during their drought. The Roadrunners, now 6-4 overall, outscored CSC 25-9 in the final frame.

While Metro’s leading scorer, Georgia Ohrdorf, with a 15.6-point average, scored just seven points, Emily Hartegan, a 6-foot junior, tallied 16 points, J’Nae Squires-Horton added 14 and Jaelynn Smith 10.

Feddersen was CSC’s only double-digit scorer with 12. She also claimed eight rebounds to lead the Eagles off the glass for the fourth consecutive game.

The visitors were 19 of 59 from the field (32.2 percent) and Metro 20-55 (34.5 percent). Each team made just three treys, but the Roadrunners were 13-18 from the free throw line and CSC only 4-7.
