McMINNVILLE, Ore. --- The No. 21 George Fox women's basketball team opened Northwest Conference play with a big win over the Wildcats of Linfield College Friday night, taking the contest, 83-75.
Tavin Headings opened the game up with a quick strike from beyond the arc to give the Bruins an early spark.
The Bruins' defense was stifling in the opening minutes as the Wildcats were unable to make a shot from the field until almost four minutes into the game.
A mid-range jumper and a deep ball from Dani Harley sent the Bruins on an 8-2 run. Kaitlin Jamieson was able to hit a couple shots in the final minutes of the first quarter to help secure a close lead, 26-22.
The Bruins kept on the gas pedal in the second, opening the quarter on an 8-0 run on the back of a pair of long balls from Headings and Haylee Hutzler.
The Wildcats came back at the end of the quarter to secure a narrow two-point lead going into the break.
The Bruins opened up the second half with a flurry of offense as they managed to go on an impressive 11-2 run.
The teams fought back-and-forth through much of the third quarter as the score was set at 64-64 going into the final period of play.
Headings continued to shine, opening up the fourth with a strike from beyond the arc, putting the Bruins up three.
