Iowa Central started off hot in the first quarter, outscoring Kirkwood 17-8. Kirkwood came out firing in the second to take a 25-23 lead. Everything went downhill for the Tritons after halftime losing the half 47-24. After a great start, the Tritons took their foot off the gas. The Tritons couldn't maintain the aggression they began with, and it ended up backfiring on them. Sarah Rolling had a team high 15 points, and 5 rebounds. Emma O'Donoghue had 11 points, 3 assists.
"Loved our intensity and execution the majority of the first half. The third quarter was a disappointment. We need to shoot and execute on offense better to take pressure off our defense. Next game is the most important game," Head Coach Kelly Kruger said after the game.
