Women's Basketball Dumps Villa Julie to Give Pepple First Career Win

STEVENSON, MD — Junior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) scored a season-high 18 points and junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) added 16 points and 8 rebounds as Frostburg State downed host Villa Julie, 69-50, to give Bobcat head coach Jody Pepple her first career victory Wednesday night at the Villa Julie Student Center.

The Bobcats (1-7) came out firing from the opening tip, quickly building a 7-0 lead on the first of Myers' game-high four three-pointers.

Junior Christina Bleivik (Houston, Pa./Bartlett, Alaska) then sank consecutive three-pointers and Myers added another long-range shot as FSU built a 22-6 advantage at the midway point of the first half.

The Mustangs (1-6) chipped away at their deficit with an 8-1 run to close to within 23-16, but FSU answered behind Faust, who scored six straight points to give the Bobcats a 31-18 lead with just five minutes remaining in the half.

FSU took a 31-25 advantage into the intermission.

Frostburg State then blew the game open with a 17-0 run to open the second half.

Bleivik had six points in the spurt and capped the run with a steal and assist on a Faust basket which gave the Bobcats a commanding 48-25 lead with just under 14 minutes remaining.

FSU's lead grew to as many as 25, 64-39, with 6:36 left before the Bobcats coasted the rest of the way.

Bleivik posted her first career double-double with 12 points and 11 steals, and she added a game-high six assists.

Freshman Sara Schumacher (Leonardtown, Md./Leonardtown) added six points and nine rebounds off the bench for the Bobcats, who forced 37 Villa Julie turnovers.

Maura Fannin led the Mustangs with a game-high 22 points and 12 rebounds.

VJC held a whopping 62-41 advantage in rebounding but shot just 20-of-64 (31.3 percent) from the floor and 9-of-20 from the free-throw line.

Frostburg State will host Lake Erie in its Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opener on Saturday at 2 p.m. The first 150 fans through the door will receive a free schedule magnet sponsored in part by Billy Bender's Carsmart of Frostburg.
