Lady Wolves Fall to Shippensburg
January 28, 2012
Aerie DeJesus paced Cheyney with 17 points and Linda Henderson added 12 points but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Wolves fell 71-53 to Shippensburg. Alexis Peterson led all players in rebounding with a career high 12.
The Lady Wolves jumped out to an 8-0 start thanks in part to back to back three pointers DeJesus and a lay-up by Henderson. The Red Radiers quickly went on a 7-0 run to get back into the contest. The First half featured a see-saw twenty minutes with both teams owning the lead. The Red Raiders took a three point lead into the locker room at half-time.
After the teams traded three pointers to start the second half, Shippensburg went on a 12-0 to take a strangle hold on the game from which the Lady Wolves were not able to overcome.
Cheyney returns to action on Wednesday night. The Lady Wolves will host East Stroudsburg at 6:00 pm in Cope Hall.
