The final score was 71-56 in favor of the Bruins, but that does not reflect the closeness of the match.The Lady Eagles pulled within four with three minutes remaining on the clock, but could not sustain the energy to finish off SLCC.
Eastern had been hot and cold all night long, pulling close and then falling behind when they could not get a basket to drop for several long stretches of time. The team will face Snow College in a home match-up Saturday at 3:00.
