Kaitlyn Dougherty made all three of her 3-point attempts and scored a career-high 25 points for the second game in a row.

DOYLESTOWN, Pa.--Eastern Women's Basketball dropped Saturday's contest at Delaware Valley College 81-56, splitting the season series with the Aggies.

Junior guard Kaitlyn Dougherty accounted for nearly half of the Eagles' offense, scoring 25 points for the second game in a row.

Dougherty shot 8-for-17 from the floor (3-for-3 from the 3-point line) and 6-for-8 from the free-throw line.

As a team, the Eagles struggled from the floor in the first half, hitting just eight of their 34 attempts (23.5 percent). The Eagles improved to 44.8 percent in the second half to finish the game at 33.3 percent. However, the Aggies shot even better in the second half, dropping 52 points on 60 percent field-goal shooting. The Aggies shot 47.5 percent for the game, well above their season average of 38.1 percent.

The Aggies shot 9-of-21 (42.9 percent) from 3-point range. The only other time an opponent has shot that well or better from long-range against the Eagles this season was on Thursday when King's shot 46.4 percent from three.

Del Val had four players scoring in double-digits. Brittany Wood and Eireann Anastasi scored a team-high 18 points. Shannon Barlow added 14 points and Kelsey Kilpatrick, 10 points.

The Eagles led 14-13 with 9:46 left in the first half, but the Aggies scored eight points in the next three possessions and maintained a lead for the rest of the game. The Aggies put the game out of reach with 14:12 to play in the second half after another 8-0 run on three possesions.

Eastern, now 7-3 in the Freedom Conference, is tied for second with DeSales University but holds the tie-breaker over them.

The Eagles get a chance to bounce back from today's loss on Wednesday at Misericordia University.
