ARNOLD — Jalynn Montgomery paced all scorers with 22 points to lead WVU Potomac State past Anne Arundel 82-57 Wednesday evening.
Her strong offensive performance included 9 of 16 shooting from the floor, 1 of 4 from three-point range and 3 out of 4 from the foul line.
“Jalynn Montgomery had another dominant performance tonight,” said head coach Larry Kruk.
Montgomery wasted little time getting started, scoring eight of PSC’s 19 first-quarter points. Anne Arundel’s Autumn Foster-Fields answered with eight points and it was 19-17 Potomac State after the first period.
The Catamounts increased their advantage slightly in the second quarter, outscoring the Riverhawks 20-16. Danijah Allen picked up nine second-quarter points and Potomac State led 39-33 at halftime.
The Catamounts dialed up the pressure going on an 18-4 run to start the third quarter and forced 14 turnovers. The lead grew to as many as 20 and it was 67-45 after three.
“Pressure led to the second half surge,” said Kruk, “and we forced Anne Arundel into mistakes, that effort fueled the offense.”
Potomac State slowed the pace of play considerably in the fourth quarter scoring 15 while holding Anne Arundel to 12.
Jaimalyn Ash had 13 points and Allen 11 for PSC. Kearstin Lucas had a team-high nine rebounds.
The Riverhawks were led by Foster-Fields’s 17 points. Sarah Healy scored 14 and Sydney Woodland 13.
