A poor shooting performance from the Colonels does them in on Thursday night as they fell to Western New England, 53-35.
The loss was the second straight for Curry, who remain securely in sixth place in the CCC.
From the tip, the Golden Bears led this one and didn’t relinquish the lead for the whole contest. The Colonels could only muster five points for the entire first quarter.
Curry shot a measly 19.7% from the field on 61 shots while the Golden Bears were able to convert 39.6% of their 53 shots. It didn’t help that Curry was out-rebounded 49-35 either.
The Golden Bears’ winning effort was led by Courtney Carlson who led the team with 18 points.
The loss didn’t come without positives for the Colonels, as they forced 20 turnovers on the night and scored a total of 16 points as a result of them.
Emily Irwin did everything she could to keep the home team in this one scoring 15 points and grabbing 7 boards but it wouldn’t be enough.
Molly Plunkett also pitched in with 13 points and 7 rebounds.
The Colonels will look to get back on track against conference leading Roger Williams University as they head to Bristol, Rhode Island on Saturday for a 1 p.m. tip-off.
