Skyhawk gets hot like Moulton lava in win over UCCS
COLORADO SPRINGS â€" Amy Moulton scored 34 points as the Fort Lewis Skyhawks defeated the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs 71-59 Saturday night at the Lionsâ€TM Den.
The loss ended the Mountain Lionsâ€TM hopes of winning the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conferenceâ€TMs Western Division. While UCCS (11-14, 8-9 RMAC) is still very much in the playoff picture, the Mountain Lions must go on the road to get the final win needed to wrap the spot up.
Jennine Sauter, a senior playing her final collegiate home game, led UCCS with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Another senior, Julie Richards, added 16 points and Stephanie Sauter had 13.
Kelly Goodman came off the bench to score 12 points for Fort Lewis (14-11, 11-6 RMAC).
A Jennine Sauter jumper gave UCCS a 42-36 with 14:16 left in the second half. Less than a minute later, Richards picked up her fourth foul and had to come off the floor. Without their 6-foot-2 center, the Mountain Lions found themselves seriously exposed in the paint.
Fort Lewis took full advantage. Over the next 7:42, the Skyhawks outscored UCCS 24-8 to take control of the game.
The Mountain Lions will play at Mesa State on Thursday and at Western State on Friday.
