KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech used a 9-1 run late in the second half and held off Concordia University down the stretch, as the Owls earned a Cascade Conference win tonight at Danny Miles Court by a 67-58 final.
After a 4-4 tie, Tech used an 11-2 run to go up 15-6, but the Cavs would answer and pull back to within three points, 17-14, with 8:05 on the clock.
Oregon Tech would score the next eight points as Kassi Conditt gave the Owls their first double digit lead, 25-14, on a layup with 4:40 to play in the opening period.
CU again cut their deficit to just three points at the 2:31 mark, but the Owls would score the last four points of the half and head to intermission leading 30-23.
CU once again battled back to trail 34-32 and eventually took a lead on a pair of Megan Padilla free throws, 42-41, with 11:06 to play. However, Conditt answered with a jumper on the next possession to give the lead back to the Owls, and eventually move up by five with 8:16 to play.
A Brittany Yates jumper pulled the Cavaliers to within a single point, 49-48, but a Tech 11-3 run gave the Owls a nine point cushion, 60-51, with just over two minutes to play. Tech would go on to hit 8-of-8 from the charity stripe down the stretch and move on to the 67-58 victory.
Tech finished with three players in double figures led by an 18 point nine rebound effort from Karissa Dixon – both game-highs. Morgan Hofman finished with 12 points and seven rebounds and Kassi Conditt 11 points and tied for game-high honors with nine boards in the win for the Owls.
