Portland, OR - ESC split their road game record this weekend, falling to Warner Pacific Saturday night in Portland. Kristi Auckland led all players in baskets, scoring a career high 25 points.

Evergreen was making a comeback late in the game when the team was down by nine points. Auckland was called for a foul, which the senior punctuated her displeasure at the officials call by spiking the baskeball. The resulting Technical sent Warner to the line for four free baskets.

Down by fifteen, it was a hard haul to catch up to the Knights, but the Geoducks managed to close the gap to 6 points at one point.

Auckland added 3 rebounds and a steal to her 25 points and Alex Saab and Angel Stewart each added 7 points. Joy White and Katie Garcin had 6 apiece.

Four Knights would be in double digits including 21 from Kelsey Mattsen and 20 from Marissa Towry.

Evergreen stands at 1-4 in CCC play and 6-6 overall. WPAC record improves to 7-7 overall and 3-2 in conference play.

The Geoducks host Northwest University at 5:30 PM Tuesday in the Greenhouse in conference play.
