Battlers sweep past Concord

ATHENS — Mike Boyd led four Concord scorers in double figures with 16 points, but Concord dropped an 81-69 West Virginia Conference decision to Alderson-Broaddus on Tuesday night at the Carter Center.

Concord (11-8, 8-7) also received 12 points from Thomas Brown, 11 by Damien Tunstalle and 10 from Jordan Davis. Tunstalle added eight rebounds and Boyd dished out five assists.  

Eric Bailey added nine points for Concord, which will visit Charleston on Thursday.

ATHENS — Rachel Artrip scored 19 points and Jacqueline Kestner added 15 points and 11 rebounds in her third double-double of the season, but the Battlers squeaked past the Lady Lions.

Cayla Rhodes scored a late basket to give Alderson-Broaddus a lead it would keep.

Concord (6-15 overall, 5-10 WVIAC) trailed by three points with eight seconds left to play when a three-point attempt by Rachel Artrip nearly tied the game before rattling off the rim.

However Jacqueline Kestner kept hope alive for Concord by pulling in the missed shot and drawing a foul.

Kestner proceeded to knock down two free throws to pull Concord to within one point at 59-58 with five seconds remaining in the regulation.

CU immediately fouled to send A-B to the foul line where Leah Hurst made one of two free throws, giving Concord the ball with three seconds remaining and down by two.

A desperation shot by Artrip missed, allowing A-B to escape with a narrow road win.

Artrip had a game-high 19 points. Kestner earned her third double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds.
