The North Central Missouri College Lady Pirates played the first game of their weekend trip to south Florida on Friday night, losing by a score of 74-62 at Miami-Dade College in Miami, Florida.
The Lady Pirates ran into their season-long problem of inconsistent play, playing well enough to win, in spurts, but losing the game, in part, due to their lackluster play over important stretches.
Amanda Rodenberg led North Central with 15 points, with Samone Redditt adding 14, Kelsey Griffin 13, and Mysti Williams 11 points. Jasmin Burger led Miami-Dade with 20 points and seven assists, while Adenike Dawodu and Channel Davis each scoring 14 points.
On Sunday afternoon, the Lady Pirates lost to the Seahawks of Broward College 97-57, in a game played at Broward's campus in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Head coach Jenni Croy called the game "a tough one" for her team", noting the Seahawks "large and athletic frontline".
Amanda Rodenberg had 14 points for North Central, while Mysti Williams pulled down nine rebounds.
The North Central women finish the 2012 portion of their basketball season with a record of 5-8. The Lady Pirates will open 2013 with a road game on Wednesday, January 2nd in Neosho, Missouri against Crowder Community College. Game time is scheduled for 6 o'clock.
