WEB FLASH: Tabor men slip past Sterling; women fall again

The Tabor men’s team struggled on the road again Monday night, but came away with a win as they beat Sterling 71-62.

The first half was close, with the lead changing hands frequently. The Jays were ahead 29-23 halftime lead. They got off to a hot start in the second half, thanks in part to Micah Ratzlaff’s 11 points in the first five minutes. But Tabor could not shake the Warriors. The lead dwindled to under 10 in the waning minutes, but the Jays held on for the win. Ratzlaff took game-high honors with 22 points.

The victory raises Tabor’s record to 11-2 in the KCAC and 16-7 overall. Pending the results of Saint Mary’s game, the Jays are in second place by a half game — but are tied in the loss column.

The Tabor women shot 10 percent from the floor in the first half, making only 3 of 30 shots. Even so, they trailed only 34-17 at intermission.

Tabor made a valiant comeback attempt in the second half, pulling to within eight points, but could not pull themselves all the way back.

The loss drops Tabor to 10-12 overall and 5-7 in conference play.
