Women's Hoops Wins At Castleton

November 28, 2006

Middlebury earned a non-conference road win with a 59-53 victory at Castleton. Down by two at halftime, Castleton saw their deficit climb to seven with just under 14 minutes to play. The Spartans would out-score Middlebury 9-2 and pull even at 40 with 9:40 remaining in the second half.

The Panthers would use a 12-2 run over the next five minutes fueled by Katie Fisher who scored six of her game team-high 16 during the span. The Spartans would not go away, however as they cut the deficit to five behind the hot shooting of Carley Amedore, who netted a game-high 17 points, including 5-10 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Castleton had a good look to cut the lead two a pair with 21 second remaining but their three-point attempt rimmed out, and the Panthers would hang on down the stretch.

Joining Fisher in double figures for Middlebury was Emily Johnson and Lani Young with 13 each. Young added nine rebounds, while three Panthers had six boards apiece.
