Lady Tridents' comeback falls short


The University of Guam Women's Basketball Club Team, the Lady Tridents, had a fourth quarter rally against the Guam Community College women's basketball team in the Trident Women's Basketball League 2.5 on March 20 at the UOG Calvo Field House, but the Tridents' comeback fell short with an ultimate 54-50 loss to GCC.

The game started with GCC taking control of the game as Meghan Cruz was unstoppable for GCC, scoring 15 of their 17 points in the first quarter. UOG could only manage five points in the first 10 minutes of the game.

The Lady Tridents doubled their points in the second quarter to 10, but GCC outscored them again with 15 points to lead 32-15 at halftime.

The third period was about the same for both teams, as UOG scored 12 points in the third period and GCC added 14 points to lead 46-27 after 30 minutes.

But the fourth period was different, as GCC could only score eight points in the quarter and the Tridents came back with 23 points but still fell short and lost 54-50.

Jocether Andrew led UOG with 12 points and Trinity Deu Misech added 10 points. GCC was led by Meghan Cruz with 23 points and Jacklynn Tendy added 12 points.

With the win, GCC (1-1) claims the No. 2 seed for the three-team league, while UOG (0-2) takes last place and the No. 3 seed.

Both teams will play each other again on Wednesday, April 3, in the play-in game for the league championship. The winner will face the Fuetsa Basketball Club (2-0) for the championship on Friday, April 5.

All games are played in the UOG Calvo Field House at 7 p.m. and admission is free for all games.
