Women’s Basketball Loses Tough One

Brianna Byrnes

In one of their most valiant efforts of the season, Bellevue College women’s basketball played host Everett on an even basis for the entire game but eventually fell 60-55 today.

After being gridlocked at 27 at halftime, BC found themselves down by one at 42-41 entering the fourth quarter. The Trojans sealed the win down the stretch with three of four key free throws in the final seconds. Brianna Byrnes nailed a 15-footer to bring the ‘dogs to within three at 58-55 with 10 seconds to go. After an intentional foul to put Everett at the line, Everett’s Maddy Thoma made both ends for the win.

Bellevue was led by Helena van Ess who had 12 points. Byrnes chipped in nine while also grabbing nine boards as well. Bellevue hosts Skagit Valley this Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.
