HELENA– The Carroll College Fighting Saints are back at home after a four game road swing that saw the women’s team win three straight and the men’s team lose three of four.
During that four game stretch, the women’s team beat third-ranked University of Montana Western and seventeenth-ranked Lewis-Clark State. Fighting Saint’s head coach Rachelle Sayers said she was happy with the way her team played on the road this late in the season.
“They played with a real sense of purpose and a real understanding of what it was we’re trying to execute,” said Sayers. “When you play a team three times in a year, the third time you got to be as sharp as you’ve been all year and I thought we were that.”
The Fighting Saint’s men’s team is trying to bounce back from a stretch where they lost three of four games. Prior to losing against the University of Providence to open the four-game stretch, the men hadn’t lost in almost a month. Carroll College head coach Kurt Paulson said that following the loss against the Lewis-Clark State Warriors, changes were coming.
“We made some adjustments, we didn’t score very many points down at [Lewis-Clark] State Saturday,” said Paulson. “We’ve got to put the ball in the hole and get more looks offensively; get to the free throw line. We’ve just been trying to preach to our guys to make a few tweaks in our offense and get more aggressive.”
The Fighting Saints will host MSU-Northern on Feb. 14 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.
