The St. Francis Brooklyn Lady Terriers are looking very impressive early on this season as they have a five-game winning streak going on and have improved to 9-2 after they beat Delaware State 68-55 on the road on Sunday.
It was the 10th time in 11 games this season that Jaymee Veney scored in double digits as she finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds, Leah Fechko nearly picked up a triple-double with 11 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists, and Eilidh Simpson had 11 points.
The Terriers let Delaware State hang around with them early on in this game as they led just 14-12 with 13:12 left to play in the first half. That got out of hand quickly though as they went on a 30-5 run that pretty much ended the game despite there being 1:31 still left in the first half. Veney and Fechko dominated that stretch as Veney had eight points and four rebounds and Fechko had five points, four rebounds and three assists.
The second half was pretty much running out the clock for the Terriers. Veney opened with a jumper that put them up by 27 points. That lead was finally whittled down to 19 with 11:37 left, but never fell below 13 throughout the remainder of the game.
The Terriers are finished with the non-conference portion of their schedule. They are only one of two teams to head into Northeast Conference play with an above .500 winning percentage (Central Connecticut is 5-4). They will take on Mount St. Mary’s at home on Jan. 4.
