Comets Go 6-0 With Win Over OCC
The Cottey College Comets had little trouble getting their sixth win of the season as they rolled over Ozark Christian College last night, 104-36.
Cottey awoke from its shooting slump three days earlier. On Saturday, the Comets could only muster 46 points for the full game against Southwest Iowa. Against OCC, the Comets had 49 points by the end of the first half as they led 49-23. The second half was even more dominant for Cottey as they owned the final 20 minutes 55-13.
Five Cottey players ended the evening in double figures, led by Dayna Turnbull's 22 points. Caryli Ingles and Selena Gochenour each had 16 points, Blaklee Sanders had 12 points, and Cassie Hale added 10 points.
As a team, the Comets' work on the boards paid off as they had 32 second-chance points compared to six for the Lady Ambassadors. Overall, the Comets had a total of 49 rebounds, with 30 of those coming on the offensive end. The Comets' pressure defense also came up with 30 steals on the night.
The win kept the Comets' record at a perfect 6-0 on the year. Next up is a road trip to Fayette, Missouri, on Friday to face the junior varsity of Central Methodist College. That game will tip off at 7 p.m.
