Lady Eagles face tough competition, drop two in NM

Sun Advocate sports reporter

The Eastern Utah Women's basketball team ventured down to Hobbs, NM for a pair of games. Both of their opponents are nationally ranked and the Lady Eagles walked away with a 69-46 and a 57-46 loss to New Mexico Junior College.

On Friday, Nov. 12 the undefeated New Mexico Junior College Thunderbirds used their quickness to out run and out shoot the Golden Eagles in the second half. Eastern Utah's Bruna Deichmann put up 14 points for the Eagles. Turnovers down the stretch hurt Eastern as they went down to defeat.

With a second chance on Saturday, the Thunderbirds pressed for most of the game. They gave up on the press as the Golden Eagles hung close. With just four minutes left in the game Eastern was only down by four points.

Injuries and illness left the Eagles playing shorthanded especially in the post. Emery High alumnus Shala Pitchforth got the opportunity for her first start in the post position. Bruna Deichmann put in another solid performance with 16 points.

Coach Paur felt his team did a lot of growing up this weekend as opportunities arose for players and the team competed against a very good New Mexico team. He was pleased with weekend's effort but was not pleased with the officiating after the four minute mark as he felt like it was a free throw parade for the home team as they extended their lead and remain undefeated.

EU has yet to get in the win column and the schedule remains tough as they next travel to Casper, Wyo., for another tournament and play against nationally ranked teams.
