WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: Cougars still winless after 73-50 loss to Trinity Western Spartans

LANGLEY, B.C. – The Trinity Western Spartans completed a weekend sweep, winning 73-50 over the Mount Royal Cougars Saturday night. This win sees the Spartans improve to a perfect 6-0 record.

The Spartans were the better team from the outset, quickly building a strong lead into the first quarter. Their offence exploded in the second quarter, going into halftime with more than double the lead, 45-20. From there, TWU rolled to its most lopsided win of the season.

Mount Royal shot just 7.7 per cent in the first half and 5.0 per cent overall (1-20) from 3-point range.

Sydney Tabin and Maddison Hooper tied for points on the Cougar side, both finishing the game with eight. The loss drops MRU to 0-6 on the season.

The second half saw much of the same rhythm, and while the Cougars continued their defensive efforts and won the third quarter 19-16, it wasn’t enough to put much of a dent in the Spartans lead.

In the final quarter, TWU outscored the Cougars 12-11 en route to a convincing win.
