Ozark Christian College’s women put up a much better fight against Central Christian College this time around, but the Lady Tigers duplicated an earlier victory over the Ambassadors 83-72 here Thursday night.
Central had nice balance, as four players scored in double figures. Kelly Smit led the way with 15 points, while Libby Regier scored 13, Raven Void added 12 and Quamisha Spence tallied 10.
Central led only 42-36 at the half as the Ambassadors played inspired compared to their first meeting. But the Lady Tigers had too much depth and their pace took its toll on OCC.
The victory improved the Lady Tigers to 4-8 on the year as they are now off until after Christmas. Their first game of 2015 will be Jan. 3 at Bethel.
Central (83) — Smit 15, Campa 5, Woods 7, Costello 5, Spence 10, Regier 13, Void 12, Garza 5, Salazar 4, Alderson 2, Shaw 5.
Ozark Christian (72) — C. Matlack 20, Hilton 7, Schultz 13, Snow 5, Mork 6, Chandler 8, Schlitz 2, W. Matlack 11.
