Lady Freemen give dominating performances vs ACC
Sophomore Sonia Radi put in weekend totals of 54 points, 22 rebounds and 13 assists, freshman Genadyne Charr added 34 points, 17 rebounds and 5 assists, and five different Lady Freemen had at least one game with double-figure points, as Providence steam-rolled the Assiniboine Community College Cougars in back-to-back games with 90-41 and 78-33 scores on the weekend.
“We are happy to have our double-sport soccer athletes back in uniform for the season now,” Lady Freemen coach Patti Parker commented following the weekend’s action. “Our team chemistry is really coming together and our passing is improving tremendously.”
Providence opened Friday’s game versus the ACC Cougars with a full-court press and reaped the benefits early. The Lady Freemen were able to force numerous turnovers and capitalized on fast break opportunities to take an early lead. Providence then never looked back, as they ran a smooth transition game en route to an impressive 90-41 win.
Freshmen Kristina Larson (10 pts, 9 rbds, 5 assts) and Chelsea Bobychuk (8 pts, 14 rbds, 5 assts) put in strong performances for Providence.
Providence then continued to roll into Saturday’s match-up, once again jump-starting their offense by putting an emphasis on their team defense. The Lady Freemen also moved the ball well on the offensive end to find easy looks, and continued to dominate on the boards.
Senior Kathy Kallis put in a strong 10 point, 5 rebound performance while Bobychuk added 12 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists of her own, leading Providence to a 78-33 win over the Cougars.
Coach Parker left the weekend enthused about the effort and ability her team showed in their weekend match-ups.
“We really controlled the rebounds to limit their second chance points,” coach Parker commented following the weekend’s games. “The three game win streak (starting from last weekend’s win over CMU) gives us a lot of hope that this season can go very well when we can put together a 40-minute effort on both ends.”
