Missed Free Throws Haunt Centurions in 78-64 Loss to Trappers

By Scott Lemon, Yellowstone Christian College SID

BILLINGS, Mont. — The Yellowstone Christian College Centurions have struggled at the free-throw line all season, and Wednesday night was no different as as a team, the Centurions left 13 points on the line in a 14-point, 78-64 loss to the Northwest College Trappers on a frigid night in Billings.

The Trappers and Centurions matched the other stride for stride all night, both on the scoreboard and in the physical nature of play. Two intentional fouls and a technical foul were called over the course of play, and the difference in the game was at the free-throw line. The Centurions shot a dismal 41% (9 of 22) at the charity stripe.

Aaron Munday-Rashid led the way for the Centurion offense, scoring 12 points, grabbing four rebounds, and passing out two assists. Stefan Tellis chipped in with a quiet 11 points.

Northwest saw four players in double-digit scoring. Reserve Luc Lombardy led the way with a game-high 13 points. Levi Londole added 12 points, and Skyler Zabriskie, Jonathan Koud, and Blake Hinze all had 11 points. Redshirt-sophomore Damon Leach just missed a double-double with eight points and a game-high 12 rebounds.

The Centurions have one more game before Christmas break: a road game against Dawson Community College on Thursday night. For more information about the season and for full game recaps, visit www.gocenturions.com.
