Busy Saturday Nets Split Results For The Matadors
Derek Diesner
Feb. 15th, 2014

YUMA, AZ – It was a busy Saturday afternoon on the campus of Arizona Western College, as the Matador basketball teams hosted Mesa and both baseball and softball teams hosted fellow ACCAC opponents for doubleheaders.
The day began with baseball and softball. The baseball team had their first struggles of the season as they fell in their two games against Pima, by finals of 9-7 and 9-3. The Matadors are now 10-4 overall and 0-2 in ACCAC action. Next up for the baseball team is a doubleheader Tuesday at home against Eastern Arizona beginning at 12 noon.
The Lady Matador softball team also got started early Saturday and cruised to a game one victory over Scottsdale 5-1. Game two was another story; it was a back-and-forth battle with the Lady Mats coming out victorious 8-7 to improve their overall record to 8-2 and a perfect 6-0 in ACCAC action. AWC will take the week off before hosting Mesa next Saturday at 12 noon at the AWC Softball Field.
On the hardwood, the Matador women’s basketball team faced some stiff competition in the Mesa Lady Thunderbirds. After one half of play, Mesa took a 29-23 lead into the locker-room and would hold on to eek out a 56-51 victory. AWC was led in scoring once again by Stephanie Schmid with 20 points on 6-of-15 shooting. Samantha Wallace, Jacy Pagala, and Jazmin Strane were all recognized before the game for being the sophomores on the team whom may have potentially played their last game inside of “The House.”
Finally, the day was capped off by the Matador men’s basketball team, and what a finale it was! The men went into the break trailing Mesa by five points. In the second half, the Matadors outscored Mesa by 12 and held them to just 32% shooting from the field in the second half. AWC was led in scoring by Anthony Alston who had 19 points on a perfect 13-of-13 shooting from the free throw line. Before the game, Alston, Darrious Hamilton, Temjae Singleton, and Ivan Uribe were honored for Sophomore Night.
This coming week will see the Matador baseball team host Eastern Arizona on Tuesday and then travel to Phoenix to face GateWay on Saturday. Softball will be off until next Saturday when they host Mesa for a doubleheader beginning at 12 noon. Both Matador basketball teams will be on the road this week as they close out their regular season schedules. On Tuesday, the teams will travel to Tucson to face Pima and then go to Sells on Friday to take on Tohono O’odham. Both basketball games can be heard on 560 KBLU-AM beginning with our pre-game coverage at 5:20pm both nights.
