Nighthawks hang on for road win

MC HERNY, Md. – Ciarra Owen scored a season-best 18 points, while Mia Buchanon grabbed a team-high 13 rebounds to lead the Northern Virginia Community College women's basketball team to a 61-55 victory over Garrett Wednesday evening.

The Nighthawks go to 6-11 this season and return to action Saturday at instate foe Thomas Nelson.

NOVA held a 12-point (47-35) advantage with less than three minutes left in the third quarter, but the Lakers got hot and took the lead midway through the fourth frame as they used an 18-4 swing.

After losing the lead, the Nighthawks called a timeout to slow Garrett momentum down, and that's when the Nighthawks took control of the rest of the game. Over the final 3:34, NOVA finished the game on a 10-2 run to secure the victory.
