Kodiak Women Win One and Lose One

Story by: Erin Fisher


After some time away from the court the Kodiaks women’s basketball team were still well prepared for the weekend games against The King’s and Lakeland.

Saturday’s game went well for the Kodiaks taking The King’s 78 – 61.

“We played fantastic defensively in the first half. Our hard work and intensity gave us that win that we needed after Friday’s game. The team played very well together,” said head coach Avery Harrison.

As the score showed, Friday’s game was a tough one for the Kodiaks as they lost to Lakeland 46 – 72.

The women’s team lost point guard Lindsey Pierson halfway through the first quarter as she was having some problems with her heart rate. Pierson was not able to recover for the rest of the game.

The team’s backup point guard was unable to make it to Friday’s game, due to class restrictions, leaving the Kodiaks without a backup point guard.

“We were ahead in points during that first quarter but couldn’t recover from the loss and Lakeland was playing very well,” said Harrison.

Harrison is very pleased with the team’s progress and said there is really no particular area the team is struggling in right now.

Harrison also pointed out Brittany Perkar as being a top player during the weekend.

“She had double figures in points and rebounds on both Friday and Saturday’s games. She was also our most consistent player this weekend and she is really prospering in our system,” said Harrison.

The women’s next games will take place on January 20 and 21 against Medicine Hat. Friday’s game will take place in Medicine Hat and the Kodiaks will play a home game Saturday.
