KEYSER, W.Va. — Chelsea Keyser drained five three-pointers and Kirsten Raynor was a point off of a double-double to push Potomac State past Patrick Henry 87-73 Saturday at Dana G. Lough Gymnasium.
Keyser scored a Catamount-high 18 points with all five of her field goals going for threes and a 3-for-4 day at the line. Raynor, a former standout at Northern, led the team with 10 rebounds, and had nine points on five free throws and two field goals. Jenna McAtee was a rebound short of her own double-double, finishing with 12 points and nine rebounds.
Heather Lesniowski was the Cats’ second-leading scorer with 17 points and added seven assists from the guard position.
“We had a lot of players come up big on the boards for us,” said Jim Walton, Potomac State head coach. “It was a big win in a competitive game. We led the entire way, but they got as close as three points in the second half. We took care of the ball again, making only eight turnovers, and that allowed us to pull away again late.”
Deonna Young had a huge day for the Patriots by scoring 30 points on 12 buckets and four foul shots. Monisha Mans added 15 points.
Potomac State (4-1) hosts Howard at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
