COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – A strong defensive effort proved to be the difference for the Northeast Community College women’s basketball team on Friday.

The Hawks (11-2) held Lake Region State College to 33 percent shooting from the field in a 73-60 victory at the Reiver Classic in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Northeast started the game off on the right foot by limiting the Royals to only 16 points in the first quarter and 13 in the second to take a 45-29 lead at halftime. Lake Region could only muster 13 points in the third quarter and ultimately turned the ball over 11 times in the contest.

Kyla Moore (Norfolk, Neb.) led the Hawks with 14 points and five rebounds, while Beth Matas (Girona, Spain) had 12 points. Emina Hadzihusejnovic (Mostar, Bosnia) and Julia Carbonell (Barcelona, Spain) had 10 points each.

The Hawks shot 55 percent from the field and out-rebounded the Royals, 36-27.

Northeast is back in action at 1 p.m. tomorrow against Snow College in the Reiver Classic in Council Bluffs.
