The Foresters used an aggressive defense to burn the Maple Leafs of Goshen College 48-25. Goshen worked its way into an 11-9 lead seven minutes into the game, but the Foresters went up 13-11 on a Betsey Bean jumper, and then they put their defense to work. Huntington held the Maple Leafs to just one field goal over the final ten minutes of the half and took a 22-13 lead to the locker room. In the second half, Huntington’s defense picked up where it left off and allowed Goshen one free throw over the first ten minutes. When Danielle Haney hit a 3-pointer from the top to finally end the Maple Leafs’ drought, the Foresters had pushed their lead to 35-17 and out-scored Goshen 13-8 the rest of the way. For the game, Huntington held Goshen to 15% shooting (8-52) from the field while going 21-56 for 38% themselves. Amy Berry was the only player to reach double digits in the game, scoring 16 points on 7-12 shooting for the Foresters. She also grabbed a game-high eight rebounds. Teammate Jessica Ramey dished out a career-high 10 assists. Erin McDugle scored eight points to lead the Maple Leafs. With the win, the women improve to 11-14 on the season and 6-8 in the MCC.
