Early W&L Spurt Too Much For Eagles To Overcome

Ahlia Moone shoots for the Eagles.

LEXINGTON, Va. - Washington and Lee hit Bridgewater College with an 18-2 spurt to start the game Thursday night and the Eagles never recovered as the Generals pulled away for an 83-51 victory in the Duchossois Tennis Center.

W&L scored the first nine points of the game before Kayla Darr hit two foul shots to put the Eagles on the board with 6:48 left in the first quarter. The Generals pushed the lead to 18-2 before the Eagles hit their first shot from the floor, a layup by Diamond Huskey, with 2:45 remaining in the opening quarter.

Ahlia Moone opened the second quarter with a layup to pull the Eagles to within 12 points, 22-10. W&L's Molly Mann and Darr traded 3-pointers to keep the margin at 12 points, 25-13.

The Generals maintained a double-digit lead for the remainder of the second quarter and led 38-20 at the half. Cold shooting plagued the Eagles throughout the opening half as the team made just 8-of-34 field goal attempts.

W&L continued to pull away in the second half to close out the 83-51 victory.

Moone led the Eagles in scoring with nine points while Erin Hughes paced the Generals with 17.

Bridgewater is now 0-4 overall and 0-1 in the ODAC. The Eagles will look to grab their first win Sunday when they host William Peace.
