Diggers topple Skylights to end losing streak

HAVRE — The streak is over.

After a month of close calls, the Montana Tech women’s basketball team finally got over the hump Saturday night, beating MSU-Northern 62-55 at the Armory Gymnasium. (Stats)

The win stops Tech’s eight-game losing streak that dates back to just before Christmas.

Tavia Rooney and Kaylee Zard each scored 13 points, and Mesa Williams added 12 for the Orediggers, who overcame a 17-4 deficit at the end of the first quarter.

The Orediggers trailed 34-18 at halftime before outscoring the Skylights 44-21 in the second half.

Rooney, a true freshman, also pulled down 11 rebounds in the win.

Mollie Peoples scored eight points for the Orediggers (12-10, 2-8). Hope lalu tossed in six, Celestina Faletoi netted four, and Hailey Crawford and Dani Urick each scored three.

Peyton Kehr scored 16 points to lead the Skylights (15-7, 4-6). Sydney Hovde and Kenya Lorton each scored 10.

Next up for the Orediggers is Wednesday’s trip to Helena to take on Carroll College.
