Scarborough, ON – The Georgian Grizzlies Women’s Basketball Team got out to a great start in their first road game in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) play but were unable to hold on falling 67-48, Wednesday night in Scarborough when they faced the Centennial Colts.
Kasey Faulkner was firing out of the gate scoring 6 points in the first quarter helping lead the Grizzlies to a 17-10 lead, but the Colts found their scoring touch in the 2nd quarter and outmatched Georgian the rest of the night.
The Colts clawed back in the 2nd quarter to take a one point lead at half time with a 26-25 score. In the 2nd half with the game tied at 34 apiece, Centennial used their home court advantage going on a 10-0 scoring run and never turning back.
