Bluejays drop pair to Ottawa

The Tabor College women managed to hit just 29 percent of their first half field goal attempts Saturday night against the Ottawa Braves and trailed 38-22 at halftime.

The deficit proved to be too large for the comeback.

The Bluejays did manage to score the first nine points of the second half to cut into the Braves lead, but that was as close as Tabor would come.

Rachelle Wertenberger was the lone Bluejay to score in double figures, as the senior tallied 12 points.

With the loss, the Bluejays fall to 8-8 overall and 2-4 in conference play while Ottawa remaines atop the league with a 13-3 overall record and a perfect 6-0 KCAC slate.

The Tabor men faced similar difficulties as they connected on only 24 percent of their first half field goal attempts and trailed 33-27 at halftime.

The Braves extended their lead to as many as 14 in the second stanza before the Bluejays mounted a comeback that brought them to within five points with two minutes to play. But timely outside shooting by the Braves fended off the Tabor rally and Ottawa won the contest 75-68.

Tabor was led offensively by Tyson Ratzlaff who scored 15 points, while Jeremiah Randall scored 14 and Jared Reese added 11.

With the loss, the Bluejays record falls to 5-11 overall, and 5-1 in KCAC play.
