The College of the Siskiyous Lady Eagles and the Chabot Gladiators played twice within 10 days back in November. COS won 88-51 at home, and then 69-60 at the San Pablo tourney. It’s been said that beating a team for the third time in a season is a difficult task. That proved to be the case for the Lady Eagles on Saturday night in the first round of the NorCal region state playoffs, as the Gladiators put up strong resistance before finally succumbing 91-87.
COS led 21-19, with 8:35 left in the first half, when the Gladiators rattled off nine straight points to take a 28-21 lead. Breanna Burnside stopped the run with a 3-ball for the Eagles, 28-24. Anna Cameron put up three points the hard way, 28-27. Chabot pushed its lead up to six points, 33-27. Back came Cameron with another 3-point play, 33-30. Carrie Watson, set up Hailey Wales for a hoop, 33-32. A put back by Cameron regained the lead for COS, 34-33, with 3:08 left in the half. Watson, Cameron and Wales combined on a sweet play to make it 36-33. Cameron added a hard fought put back at the buzzer, to make it a 40-37 advantage for the Lady Eagles at the intermission.
