The Briercrest Clippers women’s basketball team were in Lethbridge this past weekend. The team had high hopes and, although they played admirably, fell just short of their goal of winning both games.

Despite battling through injuries, the Clippers played with heart against the Kodiaks. Unfortunately, the team got into trouble with fouls, with four players fouling out. In the end, Lethbridge took the game by a narrow 83-80 margin.

Adrianna Beck led the Clippers with 28 points and was named the team's player of the game.

Coach Danny Vincent says it was a heartbreaking loss for the Clippers, but it also proved the team is tenacious.

The following day the Clippers dusted themselves off and took it to the Kodiaks, earning a commanding lead in the first half. Fatigue and frustration set in late in the game, causing for another erratic fourth quarter. This time around, however, the Clippers were able to hold on, winning 68-65.

Amber Tilcox led the Clippers with 17 points and was named the team's player of the game.

With the win, the Clippers became one of only three teams that have defeated everyone else in the ACAC (Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference) this year. Their record now sits at 9-10.

The Clippers will host Red Deer College this weekend. If they win those games, Briercrest will finish with their best record in program history. Unfortunately, they will still not be able to qualify for the playoffs.

Regardless, the Clippers thank their fans and supporters for another year. You can be sure that the Clippers will come out next year looking to improve and build on the positives from this season.

Games will be played on Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. Captain Victoria Voth will be honoured during the games.
