Women’s basketball snapped their two-game winning streak after falling to Adelphi, Saturday Nov. 17, 65-59.

It was a hard-fought battle for the Chargers as they went back and forth in a game that included 11 lead changes. The biggest lead was held by the Chargers when they were up by 10 in the first quarter. Holding the game in control by firing from the three-point range.

Unfortunately, foul trouble stopped their momentum, and allowed Adelphi back in. Freshman, Camryn Debose, exited the game late in the first with two early fouls, followed by Pergola, who received two early fouls as well.

Adelphi, whose players could not find the basket in the first quarter, came out on a mission in the second as their Julia Strachan shot 5-6 from the three-point range. Adelphi was able to tie the game at 20, then take the lead late in the second quarter as the Chargers continued to struggle with fouls. Sophomore, Luzdali Ocasio, scored 5 points off the bench for the Chargers, including a three that brought New Haven within three points at the half.

In the second half, the Chargers were able to tie the game at 34 with contributions from senior Allieyah Cubbage and Debose. They tied the game at 49 late in the third quarter.

The Chargers started to pull away, but in this game, no lead was safe. Adelphi regained the lead with a layup by Niajah Morgan.
