GOSHEN – Brooke Sugg led Grace College’s women’s basketball team to its third straight victory, beating Goshen 77-65 on the road Wednesday.

Sugg scored a game-high 33 points, her third-straight game of at least 30 points. Sugg, the reigning Crossroads League Player of the Week, hit four three-pointers and was 9 of 9 from the foul line for the Lady Lancers (8-5, 3-1 CL).

Grace’s pressure blitzed the Maple Leafs (6-6, 0-4 CL) from the opening tip. Kyannah Stull buried a trey to start the scoring, and Grace went on to score 14 straight points to start the game. Sugg had seven points during that spurt.

The Maple Leafs were stifled into six turnovers in the first quarter and did not score a point in the first 5:52 of the game. Sugg beat the buzzer with a shot for the final score of the quarter, and the Lady Lancers led 18-8 after one period.

Goshen rallied with a 10-0 run early in the second quarter to cut Grace’s lead to two. But the Lady Lancers countered with a 13-1 run of their own to re-establish a double-digit lead.

Grace held a 40-28 edge at halftime thanks to 17 points from Sugg and six from Stull.

Goshen refused to fade, however, and defensively held Grace to 14 points in the third quarter.

Grace reacted calmly, scoring seven straight points to eliminate Goshen’s immediate threat. Kaylie Warble scored three points to start Grace’s run.

The Lady Lancers managed to hold off Goshen for the rest of the fourth quarter, and Sugg hit four foul shots in the final minute for the final 12-point margin of victory.
